I HANG UNIQUE ITEMS IN THE TREES OFF MY DECK; I PUT A HIBACHI GRILL GRATE HANGING IN THE TREE; IT SPINS; I PAINTED OLD CD DISKS AND DRILLED A HOLE AND HUNG THEM IN THE TREE; I LEFT THE SHINY SIDE UNPAINTED SO IT SHIMMERS IN THE SUNLIGHT.
WE ARE REDOING A FLOWER BED WITH CONTAINERS, I WILL USE AN OLD CONSTRUCTION WHEELBARROW AND FILL IT WITH FLOWERS; MY HUSBAND IS MAKING A LARGE TROUGH TO HOLD FLOWERS, I HAVE SOME OLD PIECES OF FARM EQUIPMENT WHICH WILL EMBELLISH THE TROUGH, I USE OLD CONTAINERS SUCH AS OLD TEAPOTS, BUCKETS AND I HAVE AN OLD ENAMELED STOCKPOT THAT I USE AS A PLANTER.
I ALSO USE BROKEN POTS THAT I SET ON THEIR SIDES AND ALSO SET POTS ON THEIR SIDE WITH SOIL AND FLOWERS FLOWING OUT OF THEM.
I JUST GO THROUGH MY KITCHEN AND OTHER AREAS OF THE HOUSE; USE WHATEVER I CAN TO MAKE A UNIQUE GARDEN ART PIECE.
I love to recycle all sorts of objects in the garden anything from boots to old rusted combustion stoves -they make the best plant stands!
I'm currently trying to repair a old wood stove thats been converted to a gas bbq!
