Do It Herself Workshop- Home Depot Virtual Party
Hello all! I’m so excited to be participating with 25 amazing bloggers for my first ever Home Depot virtual party. We will all be showing you our customized and styled versions of this Rustic Wheelbarrow – which you can learn how to build at the next Home Depot DIH workshop this Thursday night!
This post is sponsored by The Home Depot
You may remember last week, I told you all about the fun workshops that you can take for FREE at The Home Depot. They have DIY, DIH (do it HERself) and kids workshops. During one of this month’s DIH workshop on this Thursday, Sept 15 you can learn how to build this fun little rustic wheelbarrow, meet some other DIYers and have a great time playing with some power tools! Check HERE to see if there is a class near you.
This year for Halloween, I wanted to do a Tim Burtonish theme, but since it’s not quite time for Halloween I wanted a way to transition from fall to Halloween decor seamlessly and here is what I came up with.
Okay, so maybe I went ahead and added a few Halloween elements, but I have more in mind. But it works wonderfully now for fall, and I won’t have to change too much next month to spice it up.
I staged everything around the wheelbarrow. It was an easy build and I’m sure anyone could pull it off. The materials cost less than $20 and you could even use some scraps.
I did a little painting to fit with my theme, but my favorite part is the spiral on the wheel. It was easy, I did a quick google image search and found a spiral that I cut out and traced onto the wheel.
I put some cool Spanish moss and some pumpkins. I’m not the best a stylizing things, the building usually comes a bit easier, but I love the purples and oranges with the black and white stripes.
So, if this isn’t your style, not problemo! I’ve got 24 other amazing projects to inspire you. Browse through and check them all out.

I’ll have some more details up soon on how I put the whole front porch together. No lie, here is what we have been using to welcome guests to our home for a year and a half.

I really do think this is a great way for people to start using power tools and learn fun stuff. All opinions in this and all my posts are completely my own.
