DIYers Are Upcycling Old Ceiling Fans Into Unique Garden Decor

Last week I showed you how to make a raised bed garden. Wasn't that a fun project or what? I can't wait to get started on mine when the weather allows it.

But I also want to add some nice decorative accents around it. So, I found this cool way to upcycle an old ceiling fan into the prettiest garden decor.

What kind of decor do you have in your garden?
