It’s almost autumn!
A time for football, everything pumpkin, and the turning of the leaves. With this cooling temperature and upcoming holidays comes the perfect time to complete crafty projects for the home.
This year, your craftsmanship should expand outside carving pumpkins. Instead, your fall crafts could incorporate metal ceiling tiles. These tiles can be used for a variety of things, and are extremely versatile. Not only will you be able to search until you find the perfect tile, but you’ll then be able to paint the tile any color you wish. Consider these four ways to spice up the character of your home and complete an exciting metal ceiling tile crafts project this fall:
- Construct A Wreath Mount – Instead of hanging your wreath or cornucopia on an ugly, dull hook this year, consider adding a strong accent piece by using a metal ceiling tile. If you’re really feeling adventurous, you can cut a metal ceiling tile to serve as the hook itself. And if you consider yourself a master craftsman, eliminate the natural green wreath entirely and create a wreath made entirely out of metal ceiling tiles. Metal ceiling tiles are quite economical, so be adventurous and have fun crafting this fall! The opportunities are endless. You can play around and find a design that you are satisfied to hang in your home.
- Create a Piece of Wall Art – The right metal ceiling tile can exist perfectly as a standalone piece. Finding a tin ceiling tile with an antique look can help provide the warmth and comfort you’re in search of this fall. You can choose a tin tile that fits perfectly for the season, or you can find one that you feel comfortable hanging in your home year-round. Selecting the piece, painting it, and hanging it does not require much work but makes for a great fall craft.
- Decorate Planter Boxes – Any metal ceiling tile design can be used to put charm and character into your plants. An easy project, you can tack the tiles to an existing planter box to instantly create a rustic, distinguished look. Boring planters can become amazing pieces of art in just a few short minutes. If you intend to keep these planters outdoors, be sure that your metal ceiling tiles are prepared as such. Although tin ceiling tiles are durable, you should be sure that they have been weatherproofed and you coated with outdoor paint.
- Build Something Practical for Your Home – There are many ways metal ceiling tiles can be used as practical pieces in your home. For example, you can create a memo board for your laundry room or entrance way that will allow you to hang pictures, keys, and notes for your family. Have fun with the design, and use stickers, glue, or paint to make the design as autumn-oriented as possible! Leaves and pumpkins can adorn the tin ceiling tile, instantly making your home feel like fall when you walk in. Metal ceiling tiles are remarkably easy to hang, which means they are equally as easy to remove. Don’t be afraid to make a tin tile for every season, either! After Thanksgiving, you can remove the fall bulletin board and replace it with the winter bulletin board that is full of snowflakes, snowmen, presents, and Christmas trees. Have fun with it! Another way the concept of a fun, practical fall project can be implemented is by building or updating coat hooks with metal ceiling tile accents. Again, this can be completed for each season of the year, ensuring that your home remains festive every season.
As mentioned, metal ceiling tiles can be painted any color you wish. It’s recommended that you use colors associated with fall, such as deep oranges, browns, and dark shades of maroon. Finding the right metal ceiling tile and painting it the perfect color can help you create a beautiful piece for your home this fall. The best part? If you’re not satisfied with your color choice, you can also paint over the tile next year with a different color.
These metal ceiling crafts for the fall can also be completed as family events. Everyone can pitch in with the painting and construction process. Clear out a Saturday morning for family bonding, and create a piece that will last in your home for years to come.
