Here’s a very cool 1950’s “Yell-A-Phone” (What a great name) megaphone.
The megaphone hangs from an old, rusty hook.
A vintage pickle jar is used as a vase within the megaphone.

Here’s all the junk used in this project.
Cheerleader Megaphone 
Old Painted Shelf
Pickle Jar 
Rusty Hook 
Vintage Candy Tin Lid

Vintage candy tin lid is transformed into a finial.
The wooden back is cut from an old shelf. The finial was snipped from the candy tin lid and then applied to the wood.

Here’s a very cool 1950’s “Yell-A-Phone” (What a great name) megaphone.

A 1950's cheerleader megaphone is combined with discarded wood shelving, an old tin lid and some vintage finds to create a unique way of displaying a bouquet tulips.
