These gift tags are so affordable and easy to make! Grab some scissors or a tag paper punch, some old cereal boxes and get to work! I used them on faux gifts to decorate the house with. For the full how-to, check out my blog post!
When you've got your mind set on something, things can happen fast! Also, being willing to take less than stellar boards for this type of project can help save money if you ask for a
discount. We used a spade to dig up the grass, built the box, filled it in and planted it in just over 24 hours. Now I just hope our veggies survive! While doing it we found that we've got grubs so we'll have to figure out how to combat that later! For lots more details go to http://29ruehouse.blogspot.com/2012/04/our-s...
In the small garden behind the house, the goal was to create a water feature with the millstone as the central focus. After much brainstorming and many sketches, this is what we designed and installed. The water level was lowered for the photograph to display the detail of the brickwork and the center support column. One does not see the liner, wires, or overflow pipes as the fountain is enjoyed. Pre-planning and creative design of all aspects of a feature is what we believe sets
We located a matching brick to the house to create the 7' x 7' basin. A bluestone cap was installed to dress up the top of the wall. This small garden space now has a beautiful water feature that sets it apart from a normal backyard area.
I did this fairy garden myself. I made the fence out of popsicle sticks, bought the house (bird feeder house), made the wire walkway arched trelis out of jewelry wire, and made the table and chairs. The table top was a little pocket mirror I found at Michael's. I also found a pond at a thrift store with a dog drinking out of an old water pump which you can sort of see on the left hand side in the picture. The butterfly is just a clip on I found at Michaels. I also got the two
little potted plants at Michael's as well. The pots didn't come with the flowers, but I had some flowers laying around the house I glued in there. The pebbles for the pebbled walkway & the moss used as grass I got at the Dollar Tree. I got the plants and flowers surrounding the house at Lowes along with the pot it is in!
Cultivators Design and Landscape loves to take everyday objects and turn them into garden planters. We took this old chair found at a thrift shop and turned it into a cool, unique planter for a clients front porch.
