One of the things I love to do in my spare time is make crafts with items from the garden or for the garden. The ideas for crafts is endless. There is so much beauty, color, and texture in the garden. I really enjoy giving a homemade item to friends and family. It’s not only a special touch but its also an economical solution for when money may be tight.
Here is one of my favorite crafts I like to make. A Succulent Mason Jar gift. So easy to make. If you can acquire a few baby succulents you can make so many of these for gifts or a large one for yourself. They look like Fairy Gardens. I used a small mason jar for this project and rocks from my yard. A project which won’t break the bank.
Have some veggie cans from dinner last night? That’s all you need to start this project. Recycled Can Herb Pots are so cute and the kids would love to help you make these. I started my own rosemary plants from cuttings. Very easy plant to grow indoors and outdoors. A little burlap, string and homemade tags and you have a great teacher’s gift or a welcome gift for the new neighbor down the street.
Are you ready for one of the most easiest crafts for your garden? How about a Tomato Cage Birdbath! I have loved this birdbath so much and so have the birds. A tomato cage and terra cotta pot bottom and a bit of paint you have a really easy project for your garden. I have this in my butterfly garden and the birds just flock to it.
Have any pint Mason jars? Plant some already established herbs or by seeds as I did for these Mason Jar Herbs. Mason jars, seeds, string, and tags. Another easy and economical project to pass along to a friend or these look so cute in your window ledge.
And one more for our feathered friends. The kids really love making these Bird Feeders and make great teachers gifts for Christmas time. Birdseed, string, and gelatin make the perfect feeder to hang on bushes or trees in the winter time.
