DIY Custom Potted Hanging Herb Garden

Recently, there’s been a ton of adorable hanging herb garden ideas appearing on blogs & Pinterest, so we were itching to do something amusing for ourselves. Making this personalized potted hanging herb garden was enjoyable and took only a few hours. This is how to do it. Pick wood first. We utilized 5-1/2-inch-wide pallet boards. After trimming, it turned out to be 24″ long. Our $.70 terra cotta planters fit through about 3 1/2′′ holes. We used a drill and a 3 1/2″ hole saw bit to center holes. Each board had a 5-inch, 12-inch, and 19-inch hole. For this hanging herb garden, we used five boards.

Then we had to drill rod holes approximately one inch from each board’s edge. The bit must just fit the threaded rod. Since it was hung from drywall, we drilled 1/2-inch holes for the crown bolts. Then we attached crowning bolts to each of those threaded rod’s sides. Use the washer & nut to secure the object at the desired spot. Insert the crowning bolt firmly into the ceiling hole. Continue with the following four threaded rods, then connect couplings. Prepare the pots & add the herbs.

Hexagonal Garden Beds

This one-of-a-kind herb garden bed, in the shape of a hexagon, is sure to be the focal point of one’s outdoor area and make a striking geometrical design statement. This project will require a compound miter saw and essential household equipment. It’s been used for gardening and furniture making. An angle of 60 degrees is formed at each corner of a hexagon. Therefore, we need to tilt the saw 30 degrees.

Using the saw, cut 12 pieces, each 2’6″ in length and angled at 30 degrees. Use screws in the corners to keep the parts from moving about. To fortify the corners, one may use an additional 24 ripped at an angle. However, if one needs their beds to be taller, they can simply add extra layers of timber. These beds would look fantastic (though pricey) if fabricated from metal, so if that seems affordable, go for it.

DIY Tire Flower Planter Garden Project

Instead of throwing away old tires, why not use them to create attractive garden decorations? Because this hanging decoration may rock while making one’s yard the talk of the neighborhood. It’s just one of those wonderful lawn decorations that won’t break the bank.

First, we used some soap & water to clean the tire and let it air dry. Then we sprayed it with two layers of paint and primer. Next, we made six holes into the tire’s “bottom” using a half-inch drill bit so that water could escape. A pointed bit and some serious muscle are required for this. It also creates a little smoke. Then we coated the bottom with just a piece of cloth weed barrier & a few styrofoam peanuts. Then we hung the painted tire from the tree limb with the metal chain and filled the tire’s bottom with potting soil.

DIY Recycled Wine Bottle Garden Torch

Light up the lawn with some retro lights for an extra dose of style. Consider creating unique tiki torches out of recycled glass bottles to add rustic charm to the yard at night. Get ideas from this torch that we have made by ourselves, which is created out of a vintage glass bottle filled with torch fuel & has had a tiki replacement wick put to it.

Make a decision on where to mount the torch made from recycled bottles. Place the Top Plate Connector on the mounting surface, then make a mark in the holes corresponding to where the bolts would go. Then adjust the hanger there and proceed to prepare the bottle. In the end, this torch was made airtight and was hung using a thread rod created from handmade hardware, Teflon tape, copper plate, and special bolts and couplings.

How to Build a Spiral Garden for a Small Backyard Garden

Make the yard more interesting by adding some spiral beds for growing vegetables. This beautiful garden stone spiral has an accent stone barrier and looks amazing when overgrown with plants. For stone, we used river rock that was 4 inches in diameter. Stones are carefully placed in a puzzle-like pattern that we trace on the ground. We also placed the biggest, flattest stones towards the base when possible. We started adding soil after we piled stones many layers high on the bottom.

When we started constructing the walls, we realized that we would need the soil to help stabilize the stones. As we continued to add soil, we worked it into the spaces between the stones, and soon the earth was helping to keep the walls in position. When it finally came to constructing the spiral base, we opted not to use any kind of foundational support. Instead, we compacted and slanted the ground in preparation for layering the stone. The outcome was excellent, and less stone was wasted.

DIY Glow In The Dark Planters Tutorial

We may enhance the visual appeal of our garden during the day by decorating it with brightly colored ornaments; nevertheless, the question remains as to how we can make our garden seem attractive during the night. Simply painting the planters with just oleum glow-in-the-dark paint would allow us to create glowing garden planters. These would serve as magnificent night garden decoration ideas. In addition, we can also utilize the LED plant pots to give our garden an intriguing appearance when it is nighttime.

However, we found that LED planters work better than glow-in-the-dark paint. So we chose the colorful seven-color planters. We took shots of every color as it changed and made a composite photo. The flower planter looks great at night, especially!

All one needs to make star wars themed garden pots is Pencil, paintbrush, Gold, white, black, gray, blue, and red paint, and water sealant. For our set, We produced Darth Vader, C3PO, a Storm Trooper, and R2D2, but one may build as many as they want. We painted the base of the pots first. Then we sketched the characters’ characteristics into garden pots using photographs. Then we removed any extraneous lines or details.

DIY Outdoor Window Shelf with Lattice

The added aesthetic appeal of custom-built wooden garden shelves is icing on the cake. The whole shelf has been outfitted with hooks to make hanging gardening equipment and supplies a breeze. This takes 4 boards, little time to cut, and is a simple design. After cutting our boards, We laid them face down. We marked the two outer boards for the front, clamped them in position, applied glue, and nailed the cross joints. Once the rear grid was glued & stapled, We turned it over and put two more boards to the front center of the grid, labeled the boards, glued, then pinned, so finally we had a window.

Now for the shelf, this basic corbel was made by tracing a spherical item three times. We clamped and sanded the two corbels together, so they matched. Next, we attached bottom slats to corbels. We glued, pre-drilled, and screwed one side. We did the same for the other side. Then we put the cross board towards the front part of the shelf. Now, we had to connect the window to the shelf.

DIY Garden Vintage Tool Box Planters

Garden decor that is both functional and decorative may be found in the form of retro toolbox planters. The old tool boxes may be repurposed by painting or distressing them to give them an antique or rustic appearance. In this example, we have a whitewashed, antique toolbox planter with the word “HERB” stenciled in black, making for a stylish display.

Our garage has two old toolboxes. So we coated them with paints. Then we painted terracotta pots with indoor/outdoor white paint. We brushed it on and wiped it off. Parts needed two coats. We dampened the rag and applied more. Finished the inner rim. Next, we put each pot in a toolbox containing Spanish moss. To prevent the plants from withering, we transplanted them to peat pots first.

DIY Garden Gazing Ball Tutorial

Garden gazing balls can look amazing by first painting the light globe a custom hue and then covering it in glass jewels. Here we have a backyard gazing ball that looks just beautiful; it was created by repurposing an old lamp bulb and a light globe. The cone-shaped lamp cover is the ball’s basis. The blue paint shows through and reflects the sunshine beautifully on the translucent marbles; it’s a sight to behold. For this, we will need Smoothfoam Ball, Foam paint brush, Acrylic paint, Glass marbles with a flat base, Hot Glue/ Clear Construction Adhesive.

ADVERTISEMENT
pinterest

For balls wider than six inches, Smoothfoam balls are sold in half, so we will need to purchase two halves to make a whole ball. Styrofoam is not the same thing as Smoothfoam. Even Oasis brand foam is useless. So don’t use Styrofoam or Oasis because they’ll break down and melt if exposed to heat and soak up a tonne of paint if used.

How To Build Grid Trellis from Garden Stakes

A lush garden will reach new heights of beauty after we add some exquisite trellises to it. Take a look at this gorgeous hand-built garden grid trellis. All of it is constructed from repurposed garden pegs. It may double as eye-catching geometric decor for any outdoor space. Trim the stakes using a miter saw first. Form the trellis perimeter frame by setting down two vertical garden posts and joining them with horizontal stakes. Corner stakes must overlap. Screw 1-1/2″ galvanized screws into horizontal and vertical stakes. One at every corner.

pinterest

Attach three horizontal stakes throughout the frame. Flip the frame over and connect the top and bottom stakes with 3 stakes. Cut remaining stake into 6, 3-inch pieces. Attach one to each corner and vertical stake. These parts keep the trellis away from the wall so vines may cover it. Caulk the trellis’s pilot holes. Caulking will seal the trellis’ external holes to the house. Mount the trellis to the wall before the caulking dries. Now place some climbing plants underneath the trellis, and we’re done.

Drill four or five holes in the bottom of the big urn so the water can drain. We may now take the urns and the saucer and then have fun painting them the color of our choice. Place the tiny urn upside-down upon the larger one. Fill a tiny potting mix around the urn, then lay the flowers one after the other. For maximum color saturation, we shuffled the order of the various hues. Place that saucer on top of the little urn, sprinkle some water on the saucer, and it is done!

DIY Garden Topsy Turvy Flower Planter Project

We can produce a breathtaking focal point by placing this topsy-turvy planter in the center of any alluring garden. To create this, we will need a rebar – about six feet, a sledgehammer or mallet, and one large clay pot for the base. We will also need four or five medium size clay pots for the middle, and one small clay pot for the top, potting soil, flowers/ herbs. Then a selection of pots has been installed in a vertical arrangement on rebar that has been secured in the ground at a depth of about one foot.

This is how we further made it possible: the pots’ bottoms are pre-drilled with holes. These holes have already been individually drilled on the rebar, so they may pass right through the containers’ bottom holes. In conclusion, the pots are placed on the potting soil that has been poured into the flower pot, and as a result, the planter becomes more stable.

DIY Garden Flower Pot Table

For a cute plan for outdoor furnishings, simply stack larger, unique garden pots in a bottom-to-top layout, and there will be some remarkable tables. To put it bluntly, this would be too tall to be used as anything other than a sofa/garden chair side table. It has a pizza pan top and might even be decorated further with paint and other accessories. First, if one needs something more permanent or the pots need a little more support, then one may make a sturdy stand by drilling a hole through two pieces of scrap wood.

The second step is to stack the pots and then drive the screw through into the wood & the pots. Put on a washer and nut, then screw it down. Third, run a caulk line along the joint between the pots, then smooth it out using a finger. Fourth, color the pots by spray painting them.

DIY Nail Polish Marbled Planters

Adding some hand-painted, attractive pots to strategically placed niches and aesthetically appealing yard areas is another fantastic method to do this.

One of the first things we should do is fill a bucket halfway with water and then let it sit at room temperature. To maximize airflow, do this task in the open air.

Nail polish goes in step two if it’s poured in generously. Distribute it out as much as feasible in the water. Use a toothpick or shake the bucket to help the mixture get along. The third stage entails submerging the vessel in question. Dip the vase on its side and let the polish wrap around the edges; we found this to be the most effective method. One can always dip again if one doesn’t get the whole pot in one go.
