We don't know what it is about tree stumps that we love so much - maybe the natural texture, the joy of reusing materials, or the fact that they're completely free. Whatever the reason, we LOVE them, and we know you do too, which is why we collected some inspiring and crazy cool pictures of tree stump upcycles that you'd better not miss!

A client who happens to be an artist was looking for a stall to display his artwork, but he wasn't sure exactly what he wanted. Because we live in a harbor city, I got to thinking and came up with this crazy idea- I"ll build a ship for him!It works as a display shelf as well, and I think it came out pretty great!
I saw these DIY Christmas balls made from beach balls online and thought they looked easy to make (and they were, thanks to the tutorial). But first I had to go to 1 Target and 2 different Walmarts to find beach balls. I live in FLORIDA people. You’d think every Walmart and Target in this area would have beach balls year round. But, nope! The 2nd Walmart I visited did the trick. I bought 4 balls.
Christmas and decorations are a big deal at our house even though our space is limited from when we downsized and sold our huge house on an acre of land. Still, decorations can compliment the holidays with a little imagination. After decorating my built in hutch and my Mom's old hutch, I decided our kitchen inside door needed a burlap wreath.
I love terra cotta pots and I especially love having plants inside the house, but I get real sick of always trying to find a new space to set another pot. I either don't have enough counter space or there's not enough room in front of the few windows I have that get good light.So I came up with this little planter that I can hang in front of the window without taking up counter space - perfect!You can find the complete DIY here.
This is how we made a solar powered waterfall for our new fairy herb garden. It cost us less than $10 to make, and is such a fun feature to have.
Today, we wanted to show you how we dealt with our unsightly hose in front of our office. The obvious solution was to grab a brand spankin’ new hose from the local hardware store, but how do we keep the new hose from following down the same path of entanglement and muck? We knew that one of those plastic wheels would help us make things tidy, but we SO did not want that eye sore to compound the injury that our air conditioner was already creating. Nope. We wanted somethin’ purdy! Since we have been playing around with so many pipe and copper projects, we felt like it was the natural choice for materials. Besides, copper has THE BEST patina when exposed to the elements. Watching it transform slowly over the years from an orangey metal to a bright teal is absolutely amazing!

Okay so for those of you who might actually still have some old cd's lying around- this is the perfect craft (assuming you no longer listen to them). And for you young in's- go hit up a thrift store! We have been super excited to add onto our zest little garden. From new plantings and labels to garden art- the list keeps growing! I think one of the best parts about gardens are that anything really goes! After all, it's supposed to be an adventure and show growth and creativity, right? So here is a little combo or creativity mixed with recycling too! Original Blog Post Photo Credit Anya McInroy
