Okay remember my princess problem. I have a beautiful backyard but no way to decorate because of the winds we get. No glass, no ceramics. Plus because it gets so hot in the summer here, it's not very colorful. So I am trying to add color through my decorations. Theses aren't perfect, but I can make them cute
I love pinwheels! They are just so happy. I found these yellow buckets in the paint bucket section at lowes. They were 3 dollars each. The pinwheels are from hobby lobby, this week they are 40 percent off, so they were about 2.50 each. Then I added polkadots by using duct tape. They didn't turn out so well. I think I am taking off the duct tape and painting them. But since I had them done I put them on the mantle because today is pretty windy and I want to see if they make it. There is a ton of dirt and rocks in the buckets, so hopefully they will stay in place.
The metal/ wood decoration is the only thing that made it through last summer. The star fire screen is actually broken, yep last year it was flung against the fence in high winds. Crazy right?
