Just in time for summer! How about making some homemade citronella candles! And I really love the simplicity of the shiny soup cans as containers. This would actually make a fabulous gift. You can find the full tutorial at Garden Therapy!
bucket table for the deck. this is a genius idea. you can store all the stuff in the table that you don't want to leave out in case it rains (citronella candles, pillows, etc.), then just grab it out whenever. Perfect for deck or patio!
