It’s no secret that Yard & Garden upcycling projects are some of my favorites- in fact, I’ve made way too many planters, bird baths, and other garden décor pieces to even mention individually!
And every year as Spring rounds the corner in March, I get antsy to create something new for our yard (and quite possibly something new for our neighbors to cock an eyebrow at!). I’m by no means alone- some of my favorite bloggers create all kinds of projects for their yards and gardens- the fun and the functional! So I’m turning to them to spark my creative muse…ready for some fantastical ideas?
A vintage match holder is transformed into an absolutely perfect bird feeder!
This will charm your garden clogs off- mason jar vases clipped to a clothesline! My heart is all a-flutter…
Oh my gosh, an insect hotel– I’ve heard of doing this for honeybees…and this one includes their friends!
A DIY potting bench…with spigot handles…too much perfection…!
Our firewood is simply piled on our back porch…but this broken down greenhouse transformation to a woodshed is REALLY speaking to me.
There are so many fun garden marker ideas…and I have yet to try out stamping on metal. Maybe this is the year??
Repurposing an outdated stair railing as a trellis for climbing veggies? Brilliant.
I just love the haunting romance of these antique key wind chimes…and now I want to make one for our porch!
What a fun reuse of a tomato cage- paired with a vintage olive bucket, it makes a seriously delightful planter for your patio. Note to self…look for olive buckets…
Who wouldn’t smile at this repurposed garden tool garden gate??
A vintage desk turned into a plant station– how fun is that? (Plus I love the bright color she painted it, too).
Sunset Magazine showcased this awesome hose holder using vintage industrial textile spools- those of us in the South have easy access to these spools all the time!
I’ve always struggled with finding unique ways to repurpose metal milk crates, so I was really drawn to this idea- a DIY patio stool.
Hard to believe this was a plastic toy horse from the thrift store, right? Looks like high-end iron statuary!!
Container gardening is one of my favorite things to do with old junk…and this rusty toolbox is no exception.
Giving a backyard shed a junky makeover is my kind of project- especially when it has a vintage, beachy vibe!
Here’s some Garden décor I would have NEVER thought of making- transforming a scratched up tabletop into an oversized “clock”. How fun for a large patio or shed décor!
What a fun way to jazz up a privacy fence…or just repurpose a pallet (which I have resisted doing thus far, but not sure I can hold out forever!).
Now, I’ve seen flower garden décor made from a lot of things…but hub caps are a first! What was once trash on the side of the highway is now whimsical art- how cool!
Talk about adorable convenience- place an old (or new!) mailbox in your garden to store all of your tools in. Green thumb brilliance, I tell ya…
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for mild Spring days so I can go play outside- gardens and repurposing go hand-in-hand, don’t they? Which idea was your favorite?? I definitely can’t decide…but I feel my creativity bubbling over!
