Three Little Pigs Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge and Blog Hop

This is Arkansas Razorback Country and we love calling our hogs!

Meet this month's co-hosts!

Everyone tackles our monthly challenges in so many creative ways, looking past dents and dings, rust and dust!  Take these plant stakes I found, for example.

When I saw three darling, chubby pigs, they had to come to my house!  From snout to curly tail, they measure about 12 inches long.  You can see they need a makeover and that's exactly what they got.  Just using paint already in my stash, each one is looking pretty spiffy now!

Razorback Red with a White Stripe

Medium Pink with Eyelashes.  (I may add a small flower behind her ear)

Razorback Red with White Polka Dots

Which one is your favorite?

These three little pigs will probably land inside my bigger planters as we get closer to Summer.  Right now, it's still a little too cool for planting annuals in Arkansas.  I think I can make a fun arrangement of planters and pigs near our front door.

  1. I can't wait to see your pigs in situ when the weather warms up.
    I love them all but the striped one is probably my favourite. Do add a flower to the plain one though, she would look amazing. No, I should say she'll look 'terrific' as that is a word I associate with pigs much more !

  2. What fun makeovers, Marci! I love the one with polka dots!

  3. Marci the link up is closed?

    I love the light pink pig with eyelashes -- so cute!

  4. These little piggies are so cute! The polka dot one is my favorite!

  5. Those pig makeovers are so cute!

  6. These three little piggies will look great anywhere you put them! Too sweet and adorable!

  7. These 3 little pigs are cute! My favorite is the one with the white polka dots.

  9. Wow they look great. I like the razorback with the stripe. :)
