Plant and Garden DIY Ideas

What’s your favorite thing about summer? Spending a lazy day at the beach? Picnics on warm, sunny afternoons? For me, summer means one thing: gardening! Not only do I have a few gardens in the backyard (veggies, perennials, and herbs), but I also have succulents in planters on our patio. I’m always looking for DIY projects for the garden to pretty things up a little bit without having to spend a lot of money–here are some of my favorite plant and garden DIY ideas.

Lightbulb Vase
Making a DIY Lightbulb Vase is a wee bit involved, but isn’t the end result worth it? I love the idea of hanging it on the wall like this.

Hypertufa Pots
Last summer, I paid an insane amount of money for pots that looked just like these Hypertufa Pots. Kicking myself! If I had seen this tutorial first, I totally would have made them.
