7 Outdoor DIY Recycled Art

After my husband brought home our new outdoor rug, I noticed other areas of our outdoor area started looking bare.  Unwilling to pay anything for outdoor decorations that are just going to be worn and damaged by the elements, I immediately started googling and searching Pinterest for some DIY outdoor art.

At first I just wanted something to hang on the brick wall because it looked so bare with the bright outdoor rug and cushions.  I didn't want to pay $80+ for an outdoor clock.  I searched and searched, but couldn't quite find the project I wanted.  But in the meantime, I did happen upon cute little DIY ants from golf balls.  The ones I found were on Craft Klatch and were black.  But living in Georgia and also already having a red theme outside, I thought red fire ants would be cute.  My husband had plenty of old golf balls in the bottom of his bag, and there are PLENTY of wire hangers on hand from shopping consignment sales :)

You can head over to Craft Klatch for the full tutorial (it's even got a video).

It wasn't until after I had painted the red fire ants that I realized... I now have red outdoor spray paint.  And I have some metal and wood wall art in my bathroom that has never quite looked right in the bathroom.  Hmm.. I might be on to something here.  My mom happened to be over so I threw out the idea to her, what if I paint these red?  She was hesitant at first and then finally replied with "Well, you can always paint back black over them if they don't turn out right."  Not exactly the enthusiasm I was hoping for, but it wasn't a "No, that's a horrible idea" and since she had actually bought these pieces for me many, many years ago, I felt like I should at least clue her in to the spray paint shower they were ready to take.

So I took them outside immediately and started spraying them before I lost my nerve.  The second the first coat went on, I knew it was perfect.  It adds some flavor to the blank brick wall and works perfectly with the red cushions.
