Like clusters of blooming rosebushes, too much of a good thing can be wonderful!
To many, the garden is a place for self-expression. The walkways, the flowers, and the décor that adorn the yard are as much a reflection of the homeowner’s personality and creativity as anything placed indoors. Lifelong gardener and garden designer Marianne Svärd Häggvik knows this and shares her favorite ideas for creating unique, personalized spaces in Rustic Garden Projects.
Here are step-by-step instructions for making concrete vases, tree swings, fountains, stained glass plant supports, and so much more to make any lawn comfortable, decorative, and a delight to linger in. Plus, Svärd Häggvik recommends the types of plants and flowers that pair perfectly with the new garden creations. Projects include:
- Willow baskets
- Conical votives
- Personalized walkways
- Raised flowerbeds
- Lion’s head fountains
- And more!
- From the simple to the sophisticated, single-afternoon to weeklong projects, these crafts are elegant, functional, and ideal for any garden or patio. For crafters and gardeners alike, Rustic Garden Projects has everything needed to transform any yard into a flowering oasis.
