Garden Projects

Garden projects can add functional, fun, and fashionable accents to your landscape and even inside spaces. Start by saving flowers with easy-to-follow instructions for preserving garden beauty. Hydrangeas in particular make a great dried flower, and we have advice on how to select blooms so the color lasts and lasts. You can also use live plants in garden projects, such as a living wreath; we have instructions for one you can make and hang on a door, fence, or deck. You can weave pussy willow branches into a striking wreath that's also a great accent inside or out. Once you've mastered a living wreath, put your skills to work creating topiaries out of your favorite plants, including shamrock and fragrant rosemary. If you're interested in using materials other than plants to create accents, try decorative glass garden votives, which you can use on a deck or patio. Tin cans -- a common cast-off -- are easily transformed into lanterns for a folk art-inspired tabletop touch. To add character to garden ornaments, apply an aged finish for an individual touch.
