I bought this stained glass lamp shade at a garage sale, and the table base at a different sale. I bought a solar rope light and coiled it around a clear glass vase, and put it under the lamp shade. (Note the solar collector at the left base of the stand.) I tied the shade to the base with green twine, so that it wouldn't blow off.

decorated light bulb

A fun craft and garden decor idea is to take old light bulbs and paint them. Glass paint is the best option, but you can use spray paint as well.

This is my garden wagon. I had seen a similar one near a hardware store that was used to advertise the hardware store; it was smaller and used with seasonal items to advertisement purposes. I loved it and my husband took a picture of it and built me a larger version for Christmas 2006. It is built of cedar and we used clear varnish for protection purposes. It sits in my front yard as a focal point in the yard.

I put a big red ribbon on the wagon wheel and a Christmas stocking on the edge of it. A black kerosene lantern on a black shepherd hook is nearby to light the wagon.

I will use it for seasonal purposes, holidays. I will use pots and plastic window boxes for flowers in it.

Recycled Metal Garden Decorations

CommentPin It!Was this helpful?Helpful? Yes

I love to use old primitive looking things that I find in my garden. This was found on the side of the road and I thought it looked like a flower, so I added it to my garden and throughout the summer, I started placing little flowers around it.

decorated black plastic flower pot

CommentPin It!Was this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Make a great addition to your patio or front porch with this decorated planting pot! I used a regular black color plastic pot, attached a variety of buttons around the top with a hot glue-gun for a neat way to add color to the pot.

I am doing my patio with red, white, and blue. I am making a stencil from cardboard out of stars and spray painting my stepping stones in the appropriate colors. I think it adds a little bit of America to my back yard.

In the dollar store there are foot high thin wrought iron plant holders, (to lean plants on) some have wire flowers on them, instead of putting them in a flower pot, I made small fences in my garden with them.

Remember those garden decorations from a few years ago of a lady bending over, showing lacy bloomers? I'm looking for a free pattern or at least a picture of one.

Thanks

This is not the Lacy Bloomers Sign that you are looking for, but a lady's backside in a flowered dress. If you go to http://www.thew  dcollection.com/ and type in the search window "Backside Lady", you will find the lady I have described above.

Looks like someone has been busy decorating in the "Path Garden" again. Hubby found these last Saturday. He hung two of the bird houses in trees, put the smallest on a pole back in the garden, and placed the shells back where they were left. He also found one flat painted rock with glitter near the chair and bench. Some little one signed the guest book, "Thank you for making My Secret Garden, I love it." Don't you just love it? I do.

My husband and I thought we would make gardening more fun by having a Wizard of Oz theme. Our favorite is the tin man, made with various "junk" from around the house like an old teakettle, trash can and funnel. This year we are planning an Alice in Wonderland theme.
