Bamboo Sunflower

A few months back I found a pile of bamboo plate chargers for .25 cents at our local ReStore. I knew I could do something with them, I just didn’t know what at the time.

Ā So, of course, I bought them and put them away for almost 6 months šŸ™‚

Then it came to me the other day. I could make a Sunflower decoration out of them for my front porch! (I have no idea where these ideas come from. They literally come out of no where!)

This project was so quick and easy. It took me under 10 minutesĀ to make from start to finish and only required a handful of zipties, twine, a small grapevine wreath, sisal rope and scissors.IMG_7459

First, I laid out my bamboo circles in the shape of the Sunflower.IMG_7460

After slightly overlapping each one,Ā IĀ attached the overlapped chargers with a ziptie.

These aren’t heavy, so a small ziptie is perfect.

Once the outside of the Sunflower was put together, I attached another bamboo circle for the middle. I flipped it backwards so it would stand out from the outer layer.

This was attached with a ziptie as well.

Next, I added the grapevine wreath to the middle. You guessed it – zipties!

At this point I thought I was done. It was cute, but I felt like it just needed something more. I added a section of sisal rope for a whimsical stem and it was perfect!

I love this one-of-a-kind summer addition to my porch!

Perfect!

If you decide to try your own hand at a Bamboo Sunflower, let me know!

I’d love to see yours!
