Ceiling Tile Ideas >> DIY Dragonfly

We are always looking for fun and interesting ways to use ceiling tiles.  In addition to Houzz, we have now discovered Hometalk, a very similar site but a tad more low-key.  So this morning, I was poking around Hometalk a bit and discovered this very fun DIY dragonfly made using 1-2 ceiling tiles (depending on your desired size), an old chair leg, and discarded keys. We think this re-purposed art would be perfect for adding a bit of whimsy to most outdoor spaces. You can find all the directions here.  We would definitely suggest choosing an aluminum ceiling tile rather than tin plated steel.  It is pre-finished with a coating that should stand up to most meteorological conditions and even if it does get a bit weathered, it is ok – that’s the look you are going for.  Plus, decorative aluminum tiles are available in lots of colors so you can choose a classic antique white or fabulous emerald green or sophisticated sapphire blue. You might even consider solid copper tiles.  Our favorite designs for this application are probably delicate daisies or butterfly needlepoint.  We would love to see your finished pieces.
