The weather is becoming overbearingly warm here in Alabama and we’ve had to mow the grass every week for the past month. Which all adds up to summertime y’all… it’s officially summertime! Which makes working in the garden the perfect weekend activity… so I though we’d look at a few projects for the garden!
The best part? Each and every one of these fun garden projects is from last weeks Welcome Home Wednesdays Linky Party! Which means these are fun projects made by actual people… which are my favorite kind of projects.
I mean just look at this DIY banner flag! It’s a mason jar… which is kind of like my spirit animal. Spirit symbol? Can an inanimate object be your mascot? Either way mason jars are totally my jam… along with every other girl on Pinterest so I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in wanting to whip this little guy up!
(Pssst… interested in a project? Click on the photo to find the full tutorial and the original blog post!).
These little wind-chimes are kind of the cutest project ever. I remember being a little girl and visiting my Nana’s house… she was an avid gardener and had the prettiest garden. She also had stacks and stacks of terracotta pots out back. Some had plants in them but most of them were empty… I’m not sure what she had them for. I’m guessing they were back-up for potting new plants but who knows! I always wondered what else we could do with them and this little guy would have been perfect.
Now these little toadstool plant markers would be a cute little project to whip up with the kiddos. They remind me of playing Mario for some reason… maybe the little mushroom toadstools in the game? Who knows!
Now this little project is nothing new… I’ve seen strainer hanging baskets before but this one is so pretty! I love the way she’s arranged the plants! I may need a few of them for our porch.
This little American flag pallet is kind of adorable! It looks fairly easy to make so you could make one this weekend! Especially if you substituted free paint paddles for the wood… how cute would that be?
Ever since last Christmas when I received my Cricut I’ve been obsessed with making signs. This little Garden sign would be so cute to make! Of course, I always love a good welcome sign… they’re so cozy!
Chandelier. Outside. Over a gorgeous farmhouse table. I don’t think this one needs much explanation… it’s genius!
Now this little project is kind of the bomb… fixing up outdoor cushions! Mine are in desperate need of a little tender love and care so I’m taking all of her tips and definitely putting them to use!
Which project are you tackling this weekend?
What a great way to add some decorative touches to my garden! Thanks for sharing!

Besty, I love the wooden sign that reads “welcome to my garden”. I love the slightly weathered wood with the black lettering. My husband and I are trying to spruce up our backyard. We’d love to find some fun and unique garden decor to display.
Thank you for the ideas! I would add one more.
I am thinking to build a small raised garden bed specially for kids where they can grow some flowers. I think, it would be very interesting for kids to see how somethings grows from a seed to a beautiful flower!
What an incredible method to add some enriching touches to my garden.
