Time off over Christmas gave the opportunity to use a little creativity and turn old rusty metal plough discs into entry features.
We started with the old plough discs and rusty fencing wire.
The discs were welded together to create an abstract style flower. Following the recycle theme we had to find something to sit the flower on to hold it to the base. Old gears hiding on a shelf were the perfect height, and had an added benefit – the flowers can rotate in the wind.
Rusty wire was twisted and fixed to the centre of each flower to add some interest and softness, as well as provide contrast in size and weight since the discs look so solid.
It seemed only right to made a number ’80’ for the street number too.
All finished – the colours in the weathered timber pillars look great with the rusty metal and overall a rather interesting finish to the driveway entry!
