Who says you have to go out and buy a planter box? Instead, you can simply paint an old toolbox and plant either succulents or colorful flowers in it.
Of course, a toolbox isn’t your only option. You can make planters out of almost anything laying around—teacups, tin cans, lanterns, even old boots can be given a new life and turned into planters!
Are you looking to add a whimsical touch to your garden? If you have an old teapot sitting in your kitchen, consider making a teapot light.
Start by getting mini solar fairy lights. While you can make almost any length work, consider getting them in 40-inch segments and fold them in half so they’re only 20 inches long. Do this with a few more segments and then tie the bent ends together with a piece of craft wire.
Then, feed the lights into the teapot’s spout and tie a washer on the other end of the craft wire, so the end of the lights and the craft wire stays in the spout. To finish off, just glue the lid onto the teapot and hang it on a shepherds’ hook, so the lights are touching the ground. When night rolls around, it’ll look like the lights are pouring out.
A DIY wood pallet walkway is the perfect addition to any garden. Simply saw some pieces of scrap wood so they’re about the same length and push the planks into the dirt, making sure to add some curves to achieve that quaint garden feel.
Consider doing this in a garden that lines your porch or patio. The pathway can help merge your home and your yard to create a cohesive image. You can even place a fiddle leaf fig or another potted plant on your porch to help everything flow together.
Say goodbye to those unsightly paper plant markers! Stone plant markers are perhaps the easiest and cheapest DIY garden project of all.
Just find a few stones around your yard or buy some at your local craft store for a more uniform look. Then, use paint or a marker to write a plant name on each stone. Voila, you have natural and cute plant markers!
Don’t settle for bland landscaping. Instead, use the DIY garden projects above to create the ultimate garden that will be the envy of all your neighbors.
