5 Up-cycle Ideas For The Garden...


I love to see something old recycled into something new. The things that people make from other people's rubbish are so inspiring. I love to see how creative some people can be. There are so many amazing things that can be made.

It is that time of year when I am planning to get the garden looking nice for summer and looking for some new inspiration. Lots of garden inspiration needed.

Today I'm sharing some fun ideas to try out and get creative in your garden too:

5 Upcycle Ideas For The Garden:

1.) Got Any Old Wooden Pallets Laying Around?
  • How cool is this outside sofa and table? I love all the ideas people can make from old pallets. Sofas, chairs, tables, also plant pot holder. Lots of building sites that are making new house are usually giving creates away.


2.) An Old And Rusty Wheelbarrow Just Hanging Around?
  • My Grandad use to have a few of these behind his shed full of old stuff. How about filling it with soil and flowers. Pretty good idea!


3.) An Old Fashioned Sewing Machine Table:
  • Perfect for up-cycling into a outside table. My Mum had plenty of these when I was growing up being a machinist.


4.) Some Old Clothes Or Odd Pieces Of  Material?:
  • Old clothes, rags or odd pieces of material are great for making outside bunting. Ripped and broken zipped clothes are great for this. 


5.) Old Bike?
  • Yeah for old bikes. Spray paint and add a basket of flowers! How cool is this idea? Love it!! I have a few old bikes in my shed, come to think of it!!

Do you fancy trying any of these ideas?

  4. Oh I do like the bunting - I may have to raid my rag bag. I'd not thought of doing that, so it doesn't matter when it gets soggy.
