8 Easy & Mega-Cute Garden Crafts

garden crafts

I have a beautiful garden filled with absolutely darling garden crafts I’ve made myself. The problem is my garden and all those garden crafts exist only in my mind. That’s right, kids. Every year I plant an imaginary garden and spend hours and hours creating crafts for it that belong on the cover of Most Beautiful Garden Crafts in The History of Ever magazine.

But, this year I’m swearing on all that is good and decent that I am actually going to make some crafts for my garden and put them in an actual garden that I will actually create.

It could happen. But, probably it won’t.

When I saw this outdoor chandelier made from a bird cage, I flipped. It’s one of the coolest garden crafts I’ve ever put my eyeballs on. I was all, “THIS CRAFTY PERSON SHOULD BE PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD!” But, then I saw the name of the blog…“Anyone Can Decorate.”

No. No they cannot, pretty crafty lady. If you saw my bedroom right now, you’d know you’re perpetrating a bloggy lie. šŸ™‚

This little garden craft makes me think of my grandmonkey. I’d bet he’d love to plant something in a juice box. Love the idea!

This is FABULOSITY! I could not believe how simple it is to make these moss letters, words, or numbers. Nice going, House & Home.Ā

Starting an Indoor Garden

Starting an indoor garden sounds so lovely to me. Even though I don’t have a green thumb, these brilliant blog posts from smarty garden bloggers makes me believe I really could start an indoor garden.

I love tomatoes something awful. There is just nothing better than a fresh tomato, and whatever those orange-red things they sell in the store are, they surely do not taste like tomatoes. That’s why I love the Inside Urban Green tutorial on starting tomato plants indoors using pop bottles. Very cool.

Quick Gardens grows lettuce indoors in self-watering pots. Brilliant! I love the idea of having lettuce in my living room. I have no idea why. Maybe because I didn’t get enough green leafy vegetation as a child.

I enjoy homemade lemon pie and homemade lemonade. It’s my experience that people who do not enjoy those things are possibly undercover operatives from a suspicious country of origin. Glue & Glitter is growing a Meyer Lemon Tree in her house. That’s how I know she’s a good American. (PS: I want this. Very much.)

Look at this photo and tell me when growing spinach has ever looked so sexy. First a Dream managed to turn spinach into home decor. Even Popeye couldn’t pull that off.

Obviously First a Dream makes me jealous because here’s another indoor gardening trick she pulls that delights me. She shows us how to grow sprouts indoors. Now listen, I’m going to admit to you I love sprouts. But since that awful outbreak of illness some years ago, I’ve been what toddlers know as “askeerd” to eat them as often. She turns a Mason Jar into sprout central and I love her for it.
