Today our Thrift Store Decor Team is putting on our gardening gloves, picking up a trowel or two and going outside to show you our best DIY Garden Projects.
Which, if you have been here for more than 3 minutes will realize, are all super budget-friendly.
Some are repurposed and upcycled garden decor, some are dollar store crafts and some are just regular old quick & easy DIY projects.
Did I mention there are over 150 of them!!!
I'll highlight a few of the gardening projects I am particularly fond of. The rest of the 150+ will be listed down toward the bottom where you see a bunch of squares.
DIY Garden Projects On A Budget
(Psst - You can view each project by clicking on the link below the photo which is highlighted in blue. The link will open in a new page, so you don't lose your place here.)
My 3 Favorite Garden DIYs From House Of Hawthornes:
Normally on Thrift Store Decor days I'm making over some treasure I found at the thrift store. But you may not know that I also have quite a bit of gardening tutorials, tips and projects on my blog.
And I just recently organized my Gardening Tutorials & Ideas page to make easier to find everything.
Lots of fun stuff there, but I'll show you my 3 personal favorites here.
If you have a garden or flower beds, you probably have squirrels and chipmunks bugging the heck out of you. I have a remedy for those pesky critters.
Bowling alleys and thrift stores are full of old bowling balls. Go grab you a couple and make some fun art for your yard or garden.
Hypertufa is a special way to make concrete planters that makes them light as a feather (OK, I'm exaggerating, but they are so much lighter than typical concrete pots). You can either make them rustic like I did or smooth and fancy if you prefer.
My Favorite DIY Garden Projects From The Thrift Store Decor Team:
These Mason Jar Herb Garden Planters from Kristin at My Uncommon Slice Of Suburbia are as cute as they are functional.
Christy at Our Southern Home's DIY Beverage Station is a quick & easy project! It keeps all your drink items in one spot on the patio and would be easy enough to move around when not in use.
This coffee can turned vase/planter by Kathy from Petticoat Junktion is a very inexpensive (and cute) way to add another planter to your gardening arsenal this year. Who doesn't have a can sitting in their recycling bin!
Raised garden beds allow you to contain your garden without tons of weeds and pest creeping in, eliminates the need for tilling and generally make for a neater looking garden. Maryann from Domestically Speaking shows us how to make cedar raised beds the easy way.
Who can't use a potting bench in the spring? Sarah from Sadie Seasongoods has made a portable version that just folds up when you're not using it and tucks neatly away.
Gail from My Repurposed Life is the Queen Of Making Benches. QOMB for short. This time she made a bench out of two old chairs! Now that's what I call thrifty!
