I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I cannot. This idea was actually given to me by my good friend Sara. She is a wiz at taking old items are re purposing them into something new. So last week when we were on our weekly garage sale date she pointed out an old hanging light and fan to me and said “hey, you know what you can do with that, don’t you?”. I glanced over at an old hanging light, completely in shambles, and said “no, not really”. “Remove the blades and turn them into dragonfly/butterfly wings for your garden with them” she said.
Brilliant! That right there is why we go garage sale shopping together. Two heads are better than one. So I grabbed up the old light for $3 and we headed off to do more shopping.
