Make Cheap Nautical Garden Art

Breanna from Dollar Store Mom has been on a mission this year to give her yard a little beautification with a series of inexpensive DIY projects.  She knew she wanted an anchor to hang on her gate, but all the real ones she found were out of her budget, as were the store-bought ones intended for use as lawn decorations.  Then she came across a cheap plastic anchor decoration at a party store and had an “ah-ha!” moment.  A little paint gave it exactly the look she wanted at a fraction of the cost!  [how to make cheap nautical garden decor]

Project estimate:

  • Plastic anchor, about $5
  • Paint, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  about $5 and up
