DIY Bird Baths!
Fall is For the Birds! 7 DIY Bird Baths | The Garden Glove
DIY: Beaded Blossom Suncatcher. Make multiples to stick in the ground near evergreens/herbs/etc. Be sure to use glass beads, since plastic is prone to fading from extended sun exposure! I'm going to put mine into my bedroom window boxes because I can't see the garden from my bed as the window is too high. I'm so glad I found this on Kathy's superb board.
Upcycled Birdbath you can make out of beautiful Vintage Glassware. Juat stack on top of each other and use heavy duty glue for glass. Beautiful!
Penny Ball for the garden. Pennies in the garden repel slugs and make hydrangeas blue. I love this idea. It looks old and new and beautiful. I need this to keep the slugs off my strawberries!

@Barrie D "You put in your zip code, and it tells you what plants you should be planting now. You can even look ahead a few months to plan out your garden!" - Interesting idea for the new homestead.
Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier

Repurposing materials in the garden is a great way to add budget-friendly accents to a cottage landscape. Think beyond a container's initial purpose and see what it can be used for. If a water fountain no longer retains water, fill it with soil for a cascading display of succulents, sedums, and other plants.
