Fun Garden Art

Did you know that April is National Gardening Month?  Well it is and after a long Winter, it feels great to get outside and get my hands dirty.  Although the Winters here in Arizona aren’t very harsh at all, people love to garden here and for me it’s not just flowers  that I like to add to my garden.  Adding some whimsical garden art is a wonderful way to bring even more color and fun to your garden.

A few years ago I created and sold plated flowers for gardens.  I loved going to thrift stores and yard sales searching for plates and small bowls that I could glue together and create an everblooming flower.

I love re-using and re-purposing unexpected items in the garden to really start conversations.

This bowling ball has been given a new look of a gazing ball with this mosaic work.  This is also a fun craft to do with your kids.

Love birds in your garden?  Then a bird bath is essential.  This one is created with a large wooden candle stick and a bowl.  You can see the tutorial here.
