Comments about OVERSIZED RECYCLED TIN FLOWERS:

My husband had to drill the hole deeper so the rod fit all the way in. Areas looked like they needed more paint.
Absolutely beautiful though.

    Comments about OVERSIZED RECYCLED TIN FLOWERS:

    My mom has been hinting at wanting metal garden flowers to brighten up the garden during the winter for the past few months. I had seen some at art festivals and online, but when I saw these they were literally exactly what I had imagined would be perfect. The price definitely beats the ones I saw at the craft fair and these are much more unique. And they are made from recycled material which is incredible! And to top it off, I was reading another comment that wished they could also be hung as wall art (I was thinking she could hang them on the barn in the summer) and low and behold the flowers have hangers on them and seperate from the stems easily! Perfect and well thought out! Lots of uses inside and out that I can think of. I had to splurge to get all 5 as gifts from all the kids to our mom because I knew I wouldn't come across anything better! I know she will love them! They were also larger than I had imagined which was an added bonus. They are made of various types of metal and will most likely wear a bit being outside in the Western Washington rain, but they already have a vintage look so I don't see a bit of aging as a problem.

          The oversized flowers add a rustic charm to an otherwise plain backyard. The fact they were made of recycled material is very important to me.

          No power in these flowers

          Best Uses

            Comments about OVERSIZED RECYCLED TIN FLOWERS:

            So disappointed. Love the art but the holes to attach the flowers to the stems are not sufficient and on some of the flowers not even large enough to attach the flower at all. One of the stems broke when I tried to attach the flower the very first time so it is totally not usable. A second flower cannot be attached at all because the hole for the stem is too small. Also, no matter what we do, the flowers will not remain standing in an upright display position during any kind of wind. I purchased all 5 flowers and sadly regret it. Beautiful art but not for a yard in Oklahoma. The stems are too narrow to support flowers of this size in any functional way. For more than 35.00 this should not happen.

                Grandma loved it for Mather's Day. She loved the fact that not only was it beautiful but also made from recycled materials. It was such a nice addition to her already beautiful flower bed.

                  Because it is winter and there's been feet of snow on the ground, I now have this in a pot in my kitchen and it makes me smile.
