License Plate Flower Sign

Did you know a license plate could be this cute? I did­n’t either! I adore how it is attached to an old, aged piece of wood to make an adorable sign.

DIY Wind Chime

I have seen many DIY wind­chimes designs but nev­er one using an old license plate until now. Can you imag­ine how beau­ti­ful this will become as it rusts? 

If rust is your favorite col­or, like mine, then you will be hap­py to know that you can lit­er­al­ly rust any­thing you can paint…yep you heard me! I did my own DIY rusty hard­ware a while ago and it changed everything!

License Plate Owl

Isn’t this DIY out­door decor project just so cute? I could see using this license plate owl in my out­door space as a cute addi­tion to my gar­den or she shes (if I had one)

DIY Outdoor Dragonfly

Like those cute fan blade drag­on­flies, except bet­ter I love the look of the old license plates as the wings of the drag­on­fly and the chip­py spin­dle for a body. Spin­dles make some of the best upcy­cled out­door projects.
