      LOVE this.. going on the garden fence. I made these fence decorations because I couldn't find wood letters in a font I liked. DIY: Discs are terra cotta saucers. Cut out letter stencils using a font you like (print from computer). Spray paint with base color (green on this one) then lay stencil and add textured spray paint. Hang with thrift shop frames. My cedar planters are under the sign; I'll post another pic when things are in bloom.

    Natural garden fencing - we just got a couple of rolls of this and will be using it along the busy sidewalk. Just a little privacy is all we want.

    If I had a rain barrel, I'd want it to be something like this one: pretty, not to big, with plants growing on top. Maybe even incorporated into my deck.

The wire cages are filled with recycled terracotta pots and was featured in The Real Rubbish Garden by Claire Whitehouse at The 2005 Chelsea Flower Show in London. Image by Mark Bolton/Corbis. This is an example of functional art that is also repurposing items that would otherwise be in a landfill."

    Use round flat items (old wall hangings, wreaths, flattened iron pieces, or flat baskets, etc.). Paint bright colors to match your gardens color scheme. Hang on a fence wall as “flower heads” using nails, wire, or staples. Recycle an old electrical cord, hose, or wires into the stem and leaves – staple onto the fence. via Shawna Coronado
