Recently, we received a photo of Sheila’s latest project. She said,

_”It was about a year ago I asked if anyone had examples of tumbleweed art. No one did. So I waited until “tumbleweed season,” picked a nice one and let it fully dry in the shed. This week I sprayed it with Rustoleum’s Bright Copper (I used the whole can. Some is now on my glasses…). I then used wire tie to loop around lower branches, threaded those through the bottom of an empty planter, then wrapped the wires around a canning ring. Then I put on two sets of copper wire solar lights (Amazon) and here we are! I love having movement and light on my porch after Christmas, while it is still so dark and cold.”_

It’s beautiful! I would have never throught to use tumbleweed as decor but now I want to go out and find some! I love the creativity and the finished project is so pretty! Thank you for sharing the idea, I know it will definitely inspire others as well!
