Fire Pit using String lights…

Keep a Firepit glowing all season with Copper-Wire Lights loosely draped over a pile of Wooden Logs in a Cast Iron Fire Bowl. Use a battery-powered strand or conceal the extension cord around a less-traveled side of the pit….

Add Lights to a Firepit instead of burning a real Fire.

    Your garden ideas are just beautiful, thanks for sharing.
    When is the right time to trim Hydrangeas ?mine bloom and after flowers are gone the get new buds all over and stay on during the winter time. Right now they look read to bloom.please help.

  2. The wine bottle fence! Love this idea. Thanks for sharing this collection, Jill. I will definitely be trying this out!

    Thank you,

    Scott (from Ace Concreting Canberra)

    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.

  4. Maggie clough

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

  5. 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.

    1. 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.

  6. I love all your crafts. I was wondering if you had the plans for the ladybug timber planter or know where I could get them. Even if I have to purchase them. Thank you!!

  7. Mildred Stallings

    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.

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

  9. 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!

  10. Michelle Dickens

    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?

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

    1. 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.

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