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?

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.
