Seasonal Bird Bath Decoration
I decorated a bird bath with small pumpkins, gourds, dried leaves, twigs, and a pot of winter flowers. Other holiday decor can be used. A festive ribbon and bow could be tied at the base of the birdbath to add more color.
Upcycled Shampoo Bottle Planter
This is a project to convert an old empty shampoo bottle into a nice hanging planter for your garden or house.
Painted Clay Pot
So easy, a much prettier way to display my orchid, and not time consuming to do. All you need is a clay pot and saucer, small bottle of acrylic paint, sponge brush, and rub on decals. Add a bit of ribbon if desired.
Cornelius Memorial Planter
In 2014, I posted and won for my recycled Tupperware pet food and water dish. I unearthed it the other day and I just couldn't make myself give it away. So I made it into a colorful planter!
DIY Wall Decoration
Re-purpose your old window frame by hanging it on a wall and placing flowers according the season. It will give your house a more vintage and stylish look.
Flower Pot People
These are some terra-cotta pots I hand painted and sealed for my garden.
Recycling Plastic Planters as Hypertufa...
Hypertufa planters are easy to make and by using old planters as molds, makes them inexpensive to make. Check out how by watching this short video.
This little garden built for a gnome is a fun garden accent, perfect for the front porch. Lean how we made ours in this short video.
Clay Pot Lighthouse
Make a cute terra cotta pot lighthouse for you garden. Check out this video and learn how easy they are to make!
Hypertufa Stepping Stones
Make your own stepping stones! This is a great project to do with the family.

Thriftstore Glass Garden Tower
Take recycled glassware to create this unique garden decoration. This glass tower will sparkle in the sun. Learn how to make it in this short video.
Rubber Boot Planter
My son is now on his 4th set of ladybug boots. They are his favorites and a good friend of ours always comments that she wants to steal them from him. So when he outgrew his last pair we decided to make planters out of them and give her one. She absolutely loved it!
Painted Rock Plant Markers
My daughter made me these strawberry markers for Mother's Day. She painted them with acrylic paints, then sprayed them with clear coat so that they could go outside. I absolutely love them and hope to make more for other plants in the garden.
Hose Wreath for Your Deck or Balcony
I saw so many of these in Pinterest I decided to make my own. It was about an hour of work and $6.00 total.
Ombré Painted Succulent Pot
Succulents are very trendy right now and are very easy to maintain as house plants. In most cases you don't want to put your plant in just any old pot. My solution is to spray paint your pot into any color you like! I personaly love metalic colors and and giving an ombré effect to the pot.
Painted Rocks in the Garden
My son had to make painted rocks for a project in his high school art class this year. He chose to do a design that incorporated 3 rocks. I am in love with these cherry blossom rocks and am so glad that he let me display them in the yard!
Thrift Store Garden Chair Planter
While on a thrift store trip, I came upon this lovely metal chair that has the most awesome scroll work and curves! This powder room chair would make a great outdoor accessory for my garden. I love bringing the indoors out.
Gluing Glass To Glass
I want to make a glass birdbath from clear and colored glassware. These pieces may be heavy and I want to know what glue would be heavy duty enough to hold them together?
Finding Patterns for Making PVC Birds
Where can I find patterns for PVC birds?
Priming and Painting Clay Flower Pots
Do you prime your flower pots before painting? I find with some colors I need to do multiple coats, not just 2-3, but more like 8-10 when using lighter colors that I want to cover most of the pot in. Do you recommend some sort of primer first?
Gluing Bird Seed to a Styrofoam Ornament
I am trying to glue birdseed to Styrofoam balls, but regular old school glue is not working. The seeds keep falling off. Does anyone know of a tackier glue that would work? I sealed the Styrofoam with Mod Podge.
Painting Hypertufa Crafts
Are the projects made with the hypertufa paintable? Or is it possible to add a colorant to the mix?
Flower Pot Bird Bath
I love the purple bird bath made with flower pots! Where did you get the large saucer for the top? What is it made of?
