Pinner Wrote: In the center of the gardens, we placed old used wooden patio umbrella frames (also salvaged) which we secured to the outer frame with wire. Plastic greenhouse grade sheeting was placed over the top and secured to the upper frame with strapping. At the base of each side “wall” we rolled the plastic around, and secured it to 8’, 1” x 2” lumber scraps, added hooks and eyes, and voila!…our greenhouses.

Vintage Trophy Wine Stoppers Shannon Vance, of Stash Style, shares how she and Robin Sweeney created them. First, use a drill to make a 1/8-inch-wide hole halfway down into a new cork ($3.99 for 30; winemakingsuperstore.com). Next, twist off the top of a vintage trophy (typically a few bucks each at thrift shops and garage sales). Apply superglue to the underside of the trophy top's base

Shrinky Dinks out of re-used #6 containers... I cut the flat parts off, stamp with Stazon ink, color with sharpies, then heat with my heat gun on a silicon mat... Works great! The largest punches work best - scallops, heart, star, fancy flower, etc.
