The Upcycled Garden Volume 13: Using Recycled & Salvaged Materials In Your Garden



In each of my Upcycled Garden blog posts I share  great ideas for unique DIY garden art that will hopefully inspire you to be innovative and think about how you can create your own upcycled garden creation.

I'm back again with my 13th installment of The Upcycled Garden, where you will find my picks for the very best ideas for using repurposed, recycled, and salvaged materials in your garden and outdoor landscape. 

So enough chat and let's get on to these beautiful ideas! Be sure to let me know which is your favorite. Leave me a comment below and share with us your own best garden upcycle project - we'd love to hear all about it!


Attach clay flowerpots to an old shutter with wire


Create some planters with fabric and cement like these from Kim, DIY instructions are here




Or for a smaller version, learn how to make a vase here


Ceramic and metal tub fountain with water plants

Old washtub with antique treadle sewing machine makes a pretty planter

A garden totem is a beautiful way to add color, texture, and a touch of vintage to your garden.

    1. I like it too, but it would be good to hear how you put this together? How do you attach the tubs? Soldering wouldn't be strong enough I guess.
