~ Johnny Jump Ups planted in small galvanized buckets looks so charming!

~ Plant half whiskey barrels tightly with strawberry plants.

~ Scarecrows are not only useful, they’re decorative.

~ Check your nearest dollar store for really cute and cheap garden decorations! They also have seeds sometimes 10 packets for $1.00.

~ Make a rustic trellis by nailing or screwing branches together in desired shape.

~ Tip a flowerpot (any size) over and have soil spill out of it. Plant flowers in the soil for a charming spilled pot look.

~ Old bowling balls can either be spray painted desired color or left as-is and used as a ‘garden sphere’ that is so popular in gardens. If you don’t have a bowling ball, check the thrift stores or yard sales to get one cheap.

~ To spruce up a plain garage or house wall in the garden, nail strips of wood onto the wall in a paned-window shape. Paint desired color, add window-box full of planted flowers, grow a flowering vine over it, or even hang silk flowers over it.

Great ideas Brenda Thanks for sharing! Your article reminded me that I have an old galvanized tub planted on its side with Marigolds "spilling" out of it....need to go post that in Meagan's thread
