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.

I am obsessed with the textufre and color of this upcycled license plate birdhouse. The added dormer made of an old rusty hinge is the cherry on top of this cute upcycled project.
