Spruce Up Your Garden With These Garden Art Projects
This is part two of 12 Garden Art Projects Under $20 with 12 more creative and thrifty project ideas. You will find several projects you can do with kids and, again, any of these items would be great gift ideas for a gardener who enjoys some whimsy amongst the flowers and veg beds.
Again, thanks go to all of the bloggers who contributed projects. Please visit their sites (see links below) and explore: I bet you’ll find some new favourites.
Amanda (Crafts By Amanda) made these wonderful painted plant markers. Once you know how to paint rocks, there’s so many possibilities from rock animals to favourite quotes, tiny rock houses, and more.
Barb C. (Second Chance To Dream) has all sorts of great ideas: candy jar birdfeeder, flower towers, DIY pyramid trellis, pop can flowers, and a gorgeous succulent planter made from an old window frame. These are all items that would be wonderful gift ideas for anyone who loves garden art.
Barb R. (Our Fairfield Home and Garden) loves to repurpose items that would otherwise go to the landfill. Me too! Here she’s added a splash of colour to old curtain rods and wa-la: perfect hose guard. I shared one of her repurposed rakes in the previous roundup but couldn’t resist showing this one too: don’t you think it makes a charming birdhouse-art piece?
Jacki (Blue Fox Farm) specializes in rustic garden art projects: a style I just love. Here she shows how to take branches and form a gorgeous lattice fence.
Stephanie (Garden Therapy) shows how to make these beautiful pieces using concrete and pressed leaves. I love concrete balls, planters, and stepping stones, and these are definitely something I want to make.
I’m a big tin-can robot fan and can’t resist having at least one character like this one in the garden, plus a tin-can dog too, of course!
And, garden art flowers from dishes and plates have become a garden art classic. It’s a great beginner project you could make any time of the year.

But Wait! There’s More!…
