Garden art on the cheap DIY: Glass marbles in your fence « Garden Drama
Colorful marbles make a plain old fence sparkle. I had the pleasure of speaking at the Lake Owasso Garden Club this week. It was a full classroom of avid, fun-loving gardeners and the topic at hand was Art in the Garden. As I told the group, I think art and the garden go together like peas and carrots and as I prepped my talk, I was reminded of one of my favorite DIY project from my own garden, the Garden Drama test garden. Festooning a six foot privacy with marbles is addictive fun that really adds a pop and punch to the garden setting, especially when the sun hits it from the back. I would recommend using new marbles. Then go to town. I lose a marble or two over the winter from the wood contracting and expanding and maybe a couple over the summer, but a little vigilance, popping them back in is all that’s needed. Beware though, once you get going on this one, you will want to be be-dazzling your entire fence. Like this: Like Loading... Related:  debspearls

Gift Ideas for poor creative souls (1) Posted by: Cathy on Apr 22, 2010 Tagged in: Untagged Having just spent hours in the garden, I thought this idea was perfect for this time of year. I know in the US they will celebrate mother's day on the second Sunday in May, so this gift is perfect and really inexpensive. This idea comes courtesy of Giver's Log. The intent of seed tape is to make planting easier when you have teeny tiny seeds that need to be planted just inches apart (like carrots and radishes). Here’s what you’ll need: -1/4 cup flour + enough water to make a paste -strips of paper to make the tape: black and white newspaper (no colored ink), single-ply toilet paper, and a thin paper bag all work -something for dabbing on drops of the paste, like the back of a paint brush -and seeds! You can also add a pretty flower to your boxes to pretty them up a bit. For tutorials on how to market yourself online, go here.

These thin strips of paper are dotted with perfectly spaced seeds, reducing the need to thin seedlings. Intrigued, I decided to make my own for a fraction of the cost. First, I have to confess. I didn't invent this craft. I actually googled it a few months ago and came across a dozen really wonderful tutorials. How to Make Seed Strip Tape (or Salad in a Tin) These little Salads in a Tin make a perfect gift for the budding gardener in your life. Mandy Dawson can also be found blogging away In Mandyland.

I'm not a big gardener but a few herbs started from seed puts me in the Spring-time mood. In my yard were hundreds of broken branches from the very long winter. I started out by breaking off a handful of sticks, all about the same length... I gathered the tools needed for this project... A pruner and a potato peeler... Note: Your may need a new potato peeler after this! Next I got to work cutting... ends of each stick and used the potato peeler to shave off several slices of the bark. Using permanent marker, I wrote the names of the plant on each stick. A spritz of spray Poly will keep the letters from fading in the sun. Stick the stakes in the soil and you're ready to grow! Ready for some Spring-time herb planting! Perfect for new seeds or to just organize your garden...
