Metal to the Petal

:::::::::::: The ReMix

I love Valentine’s Day.  In a post entitled, “Happy Valentine’s Day Kinda,” I chronicled my musings regarding this day of “love.”

I always create a project for my soon to be wife during every major holiday.  All are listed on my blog.   Valentine’s day is no exception.

“Metal to the Petal” is my attempt at to merge amore’ (that’s love) and ThriftStoreRemixology.  I hope to give my Valentine’s day gift an industrial design feel.  Every part has a metallic industrial look.

It is a simple concept, spray paint dead flowers, that I am still exploring and developing.  I hope you love it.

:::::::::::: ReMix StEpS

This project was simple and easy to complete.  I took dead roses and spray painted them a bronze color.  Next I wrapped them in a metal colored foil to took from a discarded Poinsettia Christmas planter.  Last, to in keeping with the industrial theme, I wrapped the flowers with a hose clamp in keeping with the project industrial design.
