  2. Lovely! Very beautiful, you’re an artist 😉

  3. WOW ! ! ! What a wonderful group of garden & other craft ideas ! ! Thanks for all of them & keep them coming ! !

  4. FANTASTICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Does anyone have the directions for the turtles made from clay pots shown above (but it says website no longer exists)?

    • Use clay saucers for the bodies, small clay pots for the feet and wooden balls for the head. Paint all one color, dark green if you like, then used 1″ x 1″ sponge dipped in lighter color green for the “spots”. Seal with a laquer sealant and then glue everything together. Have made quite a few.

  6. Love the ideas. One question, what is the turtle heads made out of?

  7. The horses are so great. Do you have instructions for all of these things in a book?

  8. You wouldn’t have a catalog?

  9. Do you have a catalog ?

  10. All of these craft are beautiful. keep them coming. My yard will look great.

  11. I love these ideas that you post. There is so many things that I want to try. Need instructions for the turtles. Do you have a catalog or something?

  12. I love every one of these !!! Super cute!!

  13. Awesome~~~!!!!!!!!

  14. Im going to try the flowers made from rocks we just removed several 8 foot shrubs from in front of our house and I cant wait to try this unique idea!

  15. Such cute projects! We’ll certainly make some of them! Thanks for sharing!
    And congratulations on your blog!

  16. I am desperate need for a written instructions on the horses. I have tried to find them on the website . The problem I have run into is I can only find the supply list and pictures of what they should look like putting together. The other problem I ran into was some say these rods , it’s very confusing to me what is the proper way to do it. Did you use the wipes are not. I am a 70 you’re all senior citizen. I did not do well and going to the web and finding things. Please if you have written instructions I would more than appreciate you helping me out. Thanks for your time and helping me.

  17. Does anyone have INSTRUCTIONS for the
    LADYBUG PLANTER???

  18. I would like to know how to make the the terrain cotta cow

  19. Very nice, thanks for sharing! I really like the glowing flower pots 🙂

  20. I made the mushrooms, they turned out really well, thanks for the idea

  21. Great site! Looking forward to receiving more from you!

  22. Any instructions for the wine bottle fence? Would it survive winters? It’s gorgeous!

    • Would you send the instructions on the Bottle Wall. This is fantastic. Had a bottle tree and the Board made me take it down. Still have the bottles. thank you …Beryl.

  23. I do need to get some ideas about using multiple wine bottles

  24. Love the wine bottle fence! Also like the other ideas! Keep up the great work.

  25. Have made the terra cotta pot family but I can’t find the hands. Does anyone know if these are purchased hands or home made. Either way, would like to know more about the hands.

  26. Hi, the DIY fairy garden with lights is actually my project, it is not from my unsettling life. Can you please link to my instructions here: https://littletudorontheprairie.com/2016/04/30/adding-magical-twinkle-lights-to-the-fairy-garden/
    Thanks!

  28. What a fantastic collection! Thank you.

  29. Not creative at all but enjoy seeing other’s ideas & creations. And this collection is one of the most unique I’ve browsed. Thanks!

  30. I am a huge fan of the rustic look. I would love to put a wagon wheel in my garden. I really like how you made a wagon wheel into a planter. That would look so good in my garden. I will have to try this out.

  31. How do you attach the legs to the clay pot pigs?
