Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Materials
Broken car tiers with axel
Tree branches
Sander
3" x 22" - wood plank
Dowel
Colored net or flowers of your choice
Butterflies

Step 2: His Coat Rack

Get your plank and sand it...
Cut the Axel of the car so the tiers will be on one side and the axel long enough to go to fit securely in the dowel.
Take a dowel and cut to 1.5" ...drill a hole on one side to fit the screw nail and other other side to fit the Axel of the car.
Mark the placement on the plank ...drill and screw in the dowels...paint it.
Paint the road way with white outline paint.
Now print or get some road signs...cut and paste...
paste half way where the holes to connect to the wall is...so you may cover the nail with the sign...
That's  it!
Oh little boys just love this!
If you can get signs like 'No Hitchhiking' 'Yield' it would be great!

Step 3: Her Coat Rack

Cleaning up your garden??
Well save up some strong branches...Cut to appropriate lengths and clean and sand them up.
Sand the bottom flat...and the top and bottom of the branches to a curve so it would like blend in to the plank.
Mark the placements on the plank and drill...I used 2 per branch so it would not twist and move.
Paint it...till it dries...
Make fabric flowers as this instructable ...else buy your flowers...
also get some butterflies...I bought mine on ebay
Hot glue the flowers near the holes which connect to the wall ...and hot glue flowers and butterflies as you like!
Isn't it pretty??
These would be perfect gifts for little boys and girls!

When I was a little girl, I would have loved the car wheels coat rack. The flowery one, not so much.
Neat idea though!
