Tammy and I share a love of gardening, among so many other similar interests, and this time of year is when we gardeners wish we had more time to devote purely to digging in the dirt!
Tammy has shared quite a few interesting DIY plant containers as well as DIY garden art here on Deja Vue Designs, including her own awesome tutorial on how to make a Hypertufa Pot.
Tammy has a talent for turning pieces of junk (her term, not mine!) into wonderful planters that double as pretty DIY garden art, like this vintage gas can she made over with a lace design:
Do you see how crafting and gardening sort of go hand in hand? They do!
For every person who tells me they wish they were crafty, I’ll ask them if they have ever planted flowers in a container or a garden. Mostly the answer is yes, to which I can point to that as an example of being crafty. Being creative. You’re arranging flowers and plants into a pot, which may not seem like much to you, but it is a form of creativity.
And even if you think you have a black thumb instead of a green one, there are ways you can be crafty in your gardening and enjoy it too!
Let’s check out more examples of DIY Garden Planters and DIY Garden Art . . .
This shoe planter DIY by What Meegan Makes is so lovely! The shoe looks almost exactly like my own wedding shoes, and has a sweet Victorian flair!
I think these DIY soda can garden labels by Positively Splendid are very pretty! Plus, you’re recycling at the same time as creating!
I found these cute garden critters made from gardening gloves on HGTVGardens.com. These cute little guys won’t eat your plants either!
If you make these seed packet clay pots using the tutorial from Crafts by Amanda, you can have pretty flowers on your pots as well as in them!
I did an easy faux copper paint finish on old wooden planter boxes! I love how they look in our garden! (And yes, that’s snow in the picture as I did this project in January!)
Have a birdbath that’s not being used? Make a succulent garden birdbath instead with this tutorial by Our Fairfield Home & Garden.
And how about a gardening table made out of pallets? You can make your own for less than $10 with this DIY from S.A.S. Interiors!
It’s easy to be creative in the garden, and you don’t even need a green thumb!

Hope these DIYs inspired you!
Laura, I love all your garden ideas. That pallet fold down table is genius! We do share so many interests. Thank you for sharing all your awesome ideas! ~Tammy
