smycka garden gate

just in time for summer. pete’s new garden gate – built from ikea smycka dried plants. here’s how:

build 2×4 frame. place a 1×1 strip around the edge to keep the ends of twigs in place.

Garden gate 2



Garden gate 3

cut twigs to appropriate length (my gate was just under 2 foot and i could get 3 lengths out of each twig). use glue gun to attach twigs to frame. place twigs in 2-3 layer to make the gate opaque.

screw 1×2 strips through the twigs and into the 2×4 frame around the edges. hang and enjoy!
