Planting Seeds + DIY Plant Markers

Planting Seeds + DIY Plant Markers | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

Kaycee Bassett came up with a clever way to solve her dilemma, "I didn't want to run to the store so I tried to think of something around the house I could use to make new plant markers. So this is what I came up with... clothes pins, made fancy with a Sharpie and nail polish - easy enough!"

 

I agree, Kaycee; they're great!  http://goo.gl/Vb94v

DIY and Recycled

DIY and Recycled | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

These natural and durable building materials provide a very cool contrast to elegant succulent plants. Used bricks work even better because they have a bit of personality and history behind them, and not to forget the costs (if they are used, they are probably thrown away, so they are free) .

 

The tricky part is to drill the holes, it not very difficult but you’ll have to be very patient, because any shock could shatter the brick. The candle holder is optional, you can choose to do it, but it will only score points at style.

Plant this armoire anywhere inside to provide an organized potting place. Show off painted terra-cotta pots in upside-down stacks on a high shelf. Secure a paper-towel holder under the shelf for quick cleanup.

Milk Can Artistry

Milk Can Artistry | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

 

Who wouldn't like to find one of these? I may create one of my own . . . they are wonderful, aren't they?

 

The Philoxians are known to have painted over 500 milk cans over the years. Many of the cans were painted with farm motifs illustrating the type of farm or animals that were being raised. Other milk cans were painted with sunflowers, houses, or wildlife and woodland settings.

 

Many of these truly artistic treasures are now scatters across the county. Some have shown up at auctions, farmers markets, and flea markets for resale. Many still remain as treasured items with their original owners.

"When I bought this old rusty RC Cola cooler I thought I might use it as a drink cooler at a party or BBQ, but soon realized it had a better future, becoming a potting station. With old hooks, handles, metal trays and wire baskets it has become just that. It can be wheeled around and will hold all the equipment that is needed for this job."
