Do you use herbs in your cooking? This DIY herb garden might be just the thing to add to your summer patio. I love the fragrances and find myself picking a leaf or two, or just rubbing my fingers on some of my lovely herbs when passing by. I like using terra cotta on my patio and chose to build a vertical garden with them for my herbs.
This super simple project transformed boring, frumpy plastic hanging planters (that I picked up for $3 each at my local hardware store) into hanging planters that are more my style! The whole project only took a couple hours – and I’m in love with how they turned out!
Every morning I when I walk my dog, Toby, I pass a tree that shreds the cutest littlest pinecones. I can't help but stop and pick a few up and pocket them.I have used a couple of these pinecones in the past with some cute upcycled Christmas cloches I made (see here). I decided to use these pinecones in a totally different way and make a lovely fall/Christmas decoration for my mantle.
This Modern Planter Box is a simple design that can make a huge impact to any space. You can display this eye-catching planter both indoors or outdoors.I chose to make an outdoor planter, so I used Cedar lumber due to its durability and insect repelling properties. I painted the planter white, but it will look great in any finish. Although they are not a long-term solution because they can get too big, I planted White African Iris and complemented them with some River Rock.
I worried that my granddaughter might roll out of the top bunk when she stays overnight with us. So we made this book bin out of a plastic window box planter, and fastened it to the rails with pretty ribbon. We use it to hold her books and stuffed animals. But the best thing is that it provides a barrier that she would not be able to roll over while sleeping and fall out of the top bunk.
I've been busy transplanting blackberries and, in the process, building new raised beds that combine a trellis. The following details share how to build this project and details for filling these beds and if you need more info on transplanting, it can be found here.
We all need to store pens on the top of our desks and most of the time they’re cluttered in a cup with no real style. That’s totally fine, but when we thought of this idea, we thought it was the perfect solution to help make that cup of disorganized pens actually double as pretty desktop decor. And not just any decor. Succulent decor! Now you can "hide" your desk pens in plain sight with this easy craft. And the best part? This project will take you less than 10 minutes total.
Turn an old window and some tin cans into a gorgeous herb garden for your backyard. Not only does the upcycled window herb planter looks fantastic in my little garden but it's really practical, as I now have my own little herb garden. The herbs are in portable upcycled tin can planters, that can be easily taken into the kitchen when needed. I decided to use old tin cans as planters as I had lot of success with the colourful tin can planter (click here to see) I made last year. />
When I first saw these on Pinterest I KNEW I had to learn to make them! Turns out it isn't as easy as it looks ...of course. Fortunately I got some pro-tips from my gardening mentor! Here's how I learned to make these whimsical little moss ball gardens:
Playing around with concrete and cement, I made these planters and candleholders....
