*Linking up with DIY day on A Soft Place to Land since I have nothing craftworthy this week to share*
About 10 years ago, I started reading a garden forum. I've never claimed to have a green thumb, but I still try my best, and most of all, I love seeing pictures of everyone else's gardens. On this forum, there are some great folks with lots of ideas to make their gardens more fun. Some people are so keen and can whip up beautiful creations out of common household junk! So very inspiring!
One of my goals while being on this "paid vacation" has been to tackle some projects that I never had time to do before.
Starting with garden totems.
I love these. I think they are so funky and fun, and such a great way to recycle/repurpose/reuse (my motto). I mean, who doesn't have cabinets full of old vases, candles holders and such that you can't seem to get rid of, but have no intention of using?
And this is how we get garden totems! Fun "pretties" to sparkle among the flowers and shrubs. When the sunlight hits them, they shine.
Here are the four I made last week.
These are so much fun to make, and they go pretty quickly. I've hit a few thrift stores looking for more glass, so I'm hoping to make a few more this weekend. I'll try to get some pictures of these out in the yard if the sun decides to come out.
Also, I noticed I lost a follower. :(
I have more projects to share soon, once I can get some pictures taken. Happy weekend! :)
