Upcycle ideas for the garden. While the thrill of the hunt can sometimes be enticing, remember that new should balance old. Having too many old items (or new items) can take away from your garden's overall appeal . . . If you enjoy this Magazine, you will love my blog: http://upcycledgardenstyle.blogspot.com

Upcycled outdoor light fixture - it's SOLAR!

Upcycled outdoor light fixture - it's SOLAR! | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

Using a solar bulb, and an old fixture purchased from a resale shop, Gina created a light source for her outdoor swing.

Debra Anchors's insight:

"Hanging right above my swing, it gives it the perfect amount of light - which is a good thing when you live in the sticks where things are SO dark at night. Now we can enjoy the swing any time, not just during daylight hours. It's our favorite place to sit outdoors, and now it's ready 24-7." ~Gina

One of the easiest and yet most modern designs we've seen for upcycling wooden pallets into a practical piece for  social gathering space.

 

No excuses :)

Iris Lewis's curator insight, May 1, 2015 7:04 AM

I have lots of pallets to create different things such as this.

Insect Hotels: The Hidden Worlds in Your Garden

Insect hotels: A perfect way to recycle materials and benefit your garden plants at the same time!

Debra Anchors's insight:

Insect hotels are a great project for chronic junk hoarders, who have been having a hard time convincing people that all the stuff in their shed is actually useful. Old pipes, broken pots, musty logs and bricks, bring them all out.

Paint old bricks to look like books for your garden

Paint old bricks to look like books for your garden | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

Australian artist, Daryl Fitzgerald of Light Reading Melbourne turns recycled bricks into literary, and definitely, home decor gold. These made-to-order pavers are hand stenciled with paint and meticulously created to mimic real novels, worn pages and all. What’s especially genius and unique about these intentionally vintage-looking “books” is that their texture has been naturally revealed by time.
