Design your garden into an inspiring, creative space transforming unexpected items into delightful garden decor. Before you throw a broken chair, rusty wheel barrel, or leaking watering can in the garbage, take a second look at its potential and give it a second chance to shine! Here are five creative ideas that are guaranteed to grow on you.
Transform an Old Chair
If you’re looking for something clever to show off your flowers, put a broken chair to work. Paint the chair and a flower pot a cheerful color. Next, fill the pot with an arrangement full of flowers, tall spikes, and vines. Set the flower pot on the seat of the chair or replace the seat with the flower pot. Display it next to your outdoor furniture.
A Wagon Full of Herbs
Wagons create charming contained herb gardens. Since herbs are known to spread when planted in the garden, it is a good idea to contain them. A vintage wagon is a perfect spot to grow, enjoy and harvest multiple herbs. Fill the wagon with potting soil and plant them directly in the soil or plant herbs individual pots and display them in the wagon. Tuck a decorative birdhouse, herb markers, or colorful flags for visual attention.
Pretty as a Picture
A forgotten picture frame creates a pretty as a picture focal point. Remove the glass for safety. Attach a birdhouse collection or replace it with a chalkboard and write personalized, sentimental messages like, “Welcome To My Garden” or “Love Grows Here.”
A Bicycle Built for Beauty
Transform an old bicycle into a focal point for your garden. Simply wrap it in battery-operated string lights and display it in a flowerbed or by outdoor seating.
