30+ Upcycling Ideas for Garden Planters / Garden Pots

As an upcycler, I absolutely LOVE incorporating vintage treasures- especially ones in disrepair- into my garden decor.

Upcycling a Condiment Caddy into a Succulent Planter with Modern Farmhouse Style

I recently went on a thrifting adventure in Spartanburg, SC- a town not too far from where I live (and where I was recently interviewed for their local paper!).

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.
