Easy DIY Garden Projects

These easy DIY garden projects are all simple to do but have an elegant look when finished. 

Most require just a few tools and can be done in a few hours on a weekend.

I love to craft, but never have much time for intricate projects.  I enjoy those that require just a few supplies and can be made in a couple of hours on the weekend.

Do you have an old picket fence?  Make it into a garden shelf.  How about some dollar clothes pins? 

No problem, just make a cute planter.  Got a rusty old bucket?  Add a Michael’s craft store tear drip jewel for a dazzling garden display.

Add a couple of pieces of wood to part of an old picket fence and you have a great looking picket plant stand.

simple clothes pin Pot with fresh chivesThis last one is a simple project.  Just pin clothes pins on to some fairly stiff card board and loop it into a circle.

Add a small pot of chives inside and tuck in some red cardboard hearts for decorations. So cute and easy!
