I have a fun post today that all started with my friends over at Bits of Vintage sending me not one but two of these beautiful vintage inspired post boxes... one for me to play with and one to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!
I'm going to share three different ways that I thought of to use it (other than the obvious!) and you'll then have the opportunity to enter the giveaway at the end of this post to win one of your own!
The top opens...
...and the little flap on top of the lid opens as well!
Here are three examples of how it can be used!
1. Create a pretty floral arrangement!
I created this one with $5 worth of silk flowers from Walmart, some branches from my twisted filbert bush, and a vintage letter from Santa that I found online and printed (I made this before Christmas but any vintage letter would be pretty to carry it through the winter).
This is what I chose to do with my mailbox, it is hanging next to my front door and really dresses up the front porch!
2. Use it in the kitchen!
I put my vintage rolling pin, an old cookbook, and some wooden spoons and a whisk inside for a cute vintage display.
And used an 'S' hook to hang a vintage dishtowel on the side!
3. Transform it into a bird feeder!
This is easy to make by simply attaching a pie tin to the bottom and drilling a hole in the bottom of the mailbox for the bird food to fall into the pan.
So there you have it, three ways to use this beautiful vintage inspired post box!
Now you can enter to win one of your own (sorry to my Canadian friends but this one is open to US residents only). Good luck!
