Day 3 – Funnels

Running a little behind with today’s post, but late is better than never. Today’s DIY revolves around funnels. Now if you farm is anything like ours, we have funnels everywhere in all shapes and sizes. That being said most of them are covered in oil, grease, or smell like gas and other various substances that have been ran through them. So before I would jump on doing any of these projects I would be giving our funnels a thorough cleaning!!

Our first funnel DIY gets you prepared for the upcoming Christmas holiday season. Introducing the funnel Christmas Tree. I find this to be adorable, yet something I never would have thought to do!

Another option with funnels, is more geared to outside your home and during the spring and summer months. Have you ever considered using a funnel as a pot for plants? If you answered no, then you and I had the same answer, however someone else did and I think it turned out pretty darn cute. I assume they put something across the hole to keep the soil in, but still allows that water to drain through. I think I may be going on a search for funnels this winter to hang from shepard’s hooks next spring. (See photos below)

The last Funnel DIY for the is for someone who wants to look farm chic all year long. Perfect for in the kitchen or over a dining room table. What am I talking about? FUNNEL LIGHTS!!!! If you don’t have a green thumb, but have a way with electricity turn your funnels into lights for home.funnel light

I really like how they used old chains on this one as well. Great to replace an old tree swing or an empty spot in a yard
