Make Your Own Garden Art Flowers
There are so many ways to make decorative garden art flowers. I am a flower fanatic and I’m gradually working my way through my very long list of favorites to make a garden art version of each one.
Keep your eyes open for materials in thrift shops and on the curb on trash collection day.
Here’s the supplies I watch for:
- Car hubcaps
- Old plates and dishes
- Kitchen utensils
- Wire baskets
- Serving trays
- Drawer pulls
- Small vases
- Salt and pepper shakers
- Metal sheeting
- Stove elements / heating coils
- Cake pans
- Metal pipes
- Wood posts
There are free tutorials for all the projects shown here.

DIY Garden Art Flower Tutorials
1 Drawer Pull Flowers
Grab some thrift shop drawer pulls to create these fun + functional hose guards.
Placed at strategic spots in the garden, hose guards block things like garden hoses and electric cords from going across garden beds and crushing plants.
I found some old drawer pulls from a dresser and they made perfect rosettes.
2Painted Daisy Rock
You can paint anything on rocks! The tutorial lists the art supplies needed for best results.
This is a good beginner project: you can prepare the rock, sketch your flowers and fill them in with paint.
These giant coneflowers look gorgeous in the garden next to real ones!
All you need is a roll of flexible metal from the home reno shop and thrift shop supplies.
