Learn how to transform a rusty, old object into a beautiful centerpiece! This old chicken feeder was found castaway on the farm… But with a little bit of cleaning and a little bit of vision, it has now been re-purposed into a lovely piece of art for our home.

 

I’ve been seeing chicken feeders used as planters on Pinterest for awhile now, and have really been loving them… So when I stepped into the old barn back on the farm, I couldn’t believe my luck when I came across this rusty old chicken feeder laying in the dirt…

 

How could I not have ever noticed this before?!

When I got home from the farm, I headed to Micahael’s to see what I could find to put into it. Lucky for me, there was a 70%-off rack containing some faux succulents! Total score!

 

Although my succulents came from Michael’s, I’ve also seen succulents at the dollar store that would totally work for this project.

 


Amazon also has a really great deal on Assorted Succulents, which you can check out, here!


Real succulents would also work well, I just find that whenever I go away lately, my plants aren’t very healthy when I get back, so I went with faux.

The first thing that I did for this really simple project, was give my chicken feeder a really good cleaning… 

 

Next, I cut the stems off of most of my faux succulents, unless they had a helpful super bendy stem… I left those ones on to help with placement.

Then I started placing my succulents into the trough. I started in the middle and worked my way out towards each end.

When I got to the ends, I used a little bit of faux grass as filler.
