Upcycling in the Great Outdoors: Favorite Yard & Garden Projects

Upcycling in the Great Outdoors: Favorite Yard & Garden Projects

As the last hard frost date quickly approaches and local garden centers start coming to life, I am reminded of some of the fun repurposing projects I did for our yard last year! As you may recall, our yard qualified as Certified Wildlife Habitat which is something I’m proud of…AND I’m always looking for new ways to bolster our certification. I’m just as excited about getting my garden beds in shape for the Spring planting season and watching our azaleas bloom in Technicolor.

In other words? I’m ready for S-P-R-I-N-G!

I’m already planning new projects- porch décor…bird feeders…gardening “helpers”…BUT I can’t help but reminisce about the upcycling projects for our yard that I finished last year. I picked out of a few of my favorites…perhaps you can use these as inspiration for the upcoming yard sale and vintage festival season!

Find any new ideas? I just love figuring out new ways to add quirky, functional charm to our yard & garden with the help of vintage and second-hand treasures…and I’ve got new projects waiting patiently in the Sadie Seasongoods queue. But I yearn for new ideas- thankfully, my thinking cap has a wide brim and is proper gardening attire!!

Craft on!

    I bet that your garden is just gorgeous! I had no idea that a bird bath should be fairly shallow, I am thinking of putting one in a corner garden spot, now I know what to look for. Thanks.

  13. These are all so cute! Love the old clock made into a birdhouse. Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty 🙂

    I love every one of these projects! I need a bird bath! I’m going to keep an eye out at the thrift store for the perfect “pool”. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday! Julia

  15. Hi, Sarah ~ So many great ideas! I love using everyday items in unexpected ways. That Colander Hanging Planter is calling my name. :0) Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. Love your upcycled yard and garden projects. My favorite is the planter with the water faucet. Too cute!

  17. Jann Olson says:

    I love these projects! I too enjoy making fun things for my garden. I actually have a bucket with a spigot that a friend made for my birthday years ago. It was a fountain, but I think it quit working. Wondering where it is. I still have a few things stored in a cubby area since we moved into this home. That was 5 years ago. I really need to pull everything out! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

    Sarah, I forgot to mention, I’m sure it’s not intentional, but I am not seeing a link back to the Share Your Cup Party. In order to be featured that is one of the requirements.
    hugs,
    Jann

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Thanks, Jann- no worries. I had looked for a non-featured Link Party button to add to my sidebar but didn’t see one. So I’ve added a backlink to your page at the end of this post.

  19. Loving that colander hanging planter. Great ideas here! Thanks so much for sharing at Inspire Me Wednesday. Featuring you in next week’s issue.

  20. izabelakumar says:

    Wow, so many great ideas Sarah! I’ve never thought in re-utilizing those items before! 🙂
    “Hi from Idea Box” 🙂

  21. I have to say that I LOVE PINTEREST, I have found lots of ideas for the garden on there….just gotta find the time between life and rain to work up that new bed I have in mind! Love the bucket with the faucet knob coming up out of it. Thinking that will be one of my projects for my bed! thanks for sharing.

  22. love the spigot planter, adorable!
    Jenna
