In the Garden – Upcycled Candle Jars

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 3)

When I started on my mission to brighten up the garden last year; I knew I wanted to include handmade and upcycled elements, but this is sometimes easier said than done. This week I share some easy upcycled candle Jars!

In the garden

Because our outside space is somewhat limited; our garden is mostly grass, with some unruly hedges on one side, bordered by high fences. We have essentially a smallish square of decking, where we can actually sit. Therefore anything I do, is mostly to make this small space, more pleasant to sit in!

While I was already working on ideas; I knew I wanted to do something a little different…

12 Days Of Christmas 2019 – 10 – Movie Inspired Christmas Cushion

Way back when I planned the Halloween Cat Cushion, I also planned this project! (How’s that for organised?!) So when I picked up the plain black cotton cushion cover in Ikea, I also picked up a red one!

When I say I planned this project, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas cushion. It was choosing the design that took a little more time!

12 Days of Christmas 2019 – 6 – Christmas Window Vinyls With My Cricut Maker

It’s quite nice at Christmas in our area, almost all of the houses put up lights, and it’s something quite special to come home to after work at this time of year.

Because of where our house is, it’s one of those that everyone walks past, so I like to put some sort of window vinyls or stickers up every year.

This year, I thought I’d use my Cricut Maker to see if I could create my own!
