I am having entirely too much fun on Pinterest. I pinned this cute idea a while ago because I loved the bright colors and creative reuse of something that would be headed to the trash. I didn’t really intend on scavenging for hubcaps to make the project but one literally landed in my path!
See, in front of our house is a rather large storm drain. A few years ago the pipe underneath the road collapsed, and the city replaced it and paved over it. And because the entire state of Florida is basically a swamp, the asphalt “settled,” leaving a pretty sweet dip in the road. So now every time a semi hits it, or even worse – a pickup with an empty trailer – there’s a loud noise. Someday I will make a vine video to demonstrate how loud and annoying this is.
Anyway, I’d bet that dip is what caused a random hubcap to land in the neighbor’s yard. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity so I grabbed that sucker!
Little dude was checking it out:
But I still felt like it was missing something. A leaf! I grabbed a random piece of plastic from the recycle bin and glued on some green felt. It needed some stability so I zip-tied a bamboo skewer to the back of the leaf and ta-da!
