Upcycling in the Garden
Instead of throwing away old items lying around your house, why not try to upcycle them to create something for the garden. These are just a few of the great ideas I have run across on pinterest.
UPCYCLED YARD ART
These awesome dragonflies are made out of old table legs and old ceiling fan blades. This is a pretty simple project that you could even add to by sanding and painting the old wood to brighten up the dragonfly. J
Another great idea is simply taking a large terra cotta pot and turning it upside down and glue a large flat terra cotta water dish on top. Presto!! Homemade birdbath! You can even paint it to spruce it up a bit!
RECYCLED ANTIQUE WINDOW AS YARD ART
This is a really cute idea! Just hang an old window frame from a tree and nail or tie a ledge the set some small potted plants! I love this idea!
All of these garden owls are a little different and each made out of different material but is really easy to make. Try using an old silver platter with a branch glued to the bottom. For the feet you can wrap a small piece of wire around the branch. You can even paint it orange to resemble feet more. For the eyes try different shaped bottle caps, canned veggie lids, and glass jar lids!
