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

DIY stepping stones

DIY stepping stones | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

These cute little pavers were created by Swedish garden writer Charlotte Bladh.  

 

Mix cement as to the packet’s instructions. Find a suitable mould, plus a huge leaf, such as a rhubarb leaf. Oil the leaf so it releases easily. Lay down some plastic or tarpaulin on a flat surface and place the leaf, underside up, on top. Place the mould on top of the leaf, then fill with concrete. You may need to place a weight on top of the mould to keep it firmly in place. Let the concrete dry, then remove the mould. Set aside in a warm, dry spot to cure for a couple of weeks before placing it in your garden.

Make a contemporary birdfeeder from vintage glass shades

Make a contemporary birdfeeder from vintage glass shades | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

People tend not to know what an outdoor orb is (since I made the phrase up), so I’ve decided to change the name to White Glass Shades that Every House Used to Have But Now Doesn’t Because We all Threw Them Out Like Idiots. And Now We Have to Buy Them From Secondhand Stores.

 

How’s that? Follow the photo-link to find the directions.

"Consisting of several private spaces, infused with childhood mementos from both my own past as well as my daughter’s, my garden is less a showpiece and more like a diary. It’s a place to play, experiment and show my personality, and I love it with all my heart."  ~Rebecca Sweet

DIY Succulent Pallet Table

DIY Succulent Pallet Table | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

After pulling apart two pallets, we used the 2 x 4 sized boards to make a rectangular frame to attached the appropriated table legs.

 

Debate went back and forth whether or not to strip the paint off the legs…we’re not huge fans of washed out creamy yellow.

 

We ended up just leaving them dinged up how we found them. In the end, it worked in our favor.
