If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love a good deal and I frequent my local ReStore here in Medina often! On one of my more recent trips, I found a pile of bamboo plate chargers for 25 cents. I knew I could do something with them, I just didn’t know what at the time.
So, of course, I bought them and put them away for almost 6 months 🙂
Then it came to me the other day. I could make a Sunflower decoration out of them for my front porch! (I have no idea where these ideas come from. They literally come out of nowhere!)
This project was so quick and easy. It took me under 10 minutes to make from start to finish and only required a handful of zipties, twine, a small grapevine wreath, sisal rope and scissors.

And, of course, if you decide to try your own hand at a Bamboo Sunflower, let me know! I’d love to see yours!
This project is fast and simple! Anyone can do it!
First, I laid out my bamboo circles in the shape of the sunflower.
After slightly overlapping each one, I attached the overlapped chargers with a ziptie.
Because these are so lightweight, small zipties are really all you need.
Once the outside of the sunflower was put together, I attached another bamboo circle for the middle.
I flipped it backwards so it would stand out from the outer layer. This was attached with a ziptie as well.
Using one of the tightened zipties, I attached the piece of twine for hanging.
Next, I added the grapevine wreath to the middle. You guessed it – with zipties!
At this point I thought I was done. It was cute, but I felt like it just needed something more…
I added a section of sisal rope for a whimsical stem and…
I love this one-of-a-kind summer addition to my porch!
