Here’s A Whole Bunch Of DIY Garden Projects You Can Make Without Using Any Power Tools
I have nothing against power tools but sometimes you either don’t have them or just don’t want to use them during an afternoon of crafting or art-making. I happen to live next to a daycare, so randomly operating noisy machinery is not really condusive to happy neighbours and wee folk.
There are more DIY projects listed here.
See each of the projects below for tutorials and supply lists.
With proper planning and care, you can safely add mirrors to a garden for interesting effects.
