Hi! If you know my blog Dagmar's Home, you know that I'm passionate about green living.I'm all about reusing, recycling, and repurposing, and kind of a hoarder of a lot of things like orange juice can tops (which I reused for plant markers and to make this pin board).One thing I keep saving is the twist ties from bread bags, and they came in handy when I devised an inexpensive and super fast netting fence for my small container garden on the side of our Blue Cottage. I wanted to keep little critters and deer out of our garden, and I wanted the most inexpensive way to make a garden fencing, and this is what I came up with. And it works perfectly!We only have a small garden, but you can create this fence for larger gardens as well.
It only took me 10 minutes to make this DIY mason jar pendant lamp!You can find the easy tutorial on Dagmar's Home.Mason jar pendant lights are all the rage and sell for a lot of money - but you can make them yourself, for not much money!In this post, I want to encourage you to make your own mason jar lamp.

Find the easy tutorial on Dagmar's Home.Every time it rains, I had to move the wood furniture on our porch to the center of the porch and cover them with plastic tarps so they wouldn't get ruined.That not only doesn’t look nice, it’s also just annoying!We were not able to enjoy the porch like we would like to because I was constantly moving things.So I came up with the perfect, inexpensive solution: add curtains on the sides of the porch that I can pull out when it’s raining!I made them with $10 shower curtain liners that look like fabric.They have been working like a charm for 2 years now! They have not ripped, and when they get dirty, I can throw them into the washing machine.
