Repurposed Thrift Store Items For Your Yard
Do you want to repurpose things from thrift stores? Or maybe you wonder how to repurpose and upcycle things in your home? I went to a thrifts store and repurposed thrift store items for my yard.
I found this broken cake stand base at the thrift store for free.
I E6000 glued a bowl upside down onto the cake stand base to create a mushroom for my garden.

This is a vase filled with water to make it more sturdy – you could add dollar tree rocks if you like – and E6000 taper candle holder upside down onto the base to create another mushroom.
This last mushroom is a stemmed glass dish upside down for the base.
I placed E6000 onto the base and then an upside down bowl onto that.
I added some leaf dishes as lily pads and added some dollar store ceramic frogs to create a display.
This solar chandelier is a candle holder that was missing the glass pieces to hold the candles. The solar lights fit right into the holes.
It creates some great ambiance in our gazebo.
This fountain was so easy to create.
The washtub is my grandparents but you could easily use a flower pot.
I bought a fountain kit at Walmart and now I have a nice fountain on my patio.

I also created this solar fountain by placing a solar fountain pump in a thrift store bowl onto a plant stand I found for free.

I also added a solar fountain pump to this fondue pot to create a solar fountain by day and take that off for a small table top fire by night.
This one is at our small condo on our deck. You can see the full tutorial here – Fondue Pot to Table Top Solar Fountain & Fire Pit
For my solar lamp, I siliconed a solar light into a candle holder I found at the thrift store.

I found this fun taper candle holder at IKEA.
I siliconed solar lights into the taper candle holders and let that dry.
I added some dangling crystals I found at the thrift store for added sparkle.
I hung this in our tree. It hangs low enough to get plenty of light.

I love all of your ideas Chas. The “mushroom” ones are like my “thing” this summer. The funny part is that one of the bowls you used looks like our ICE CREAM bowls. LOL
Thanks Linda and I love your mushroom that you made this summer too – super cute. Love that you have beautiful ice cream bowls. That has to make eating it even more special.
You are so creative, O can’t wait to move into our “Forever Home” to make a few of your creations! #trafficjamweekend
Thank you so much Antionette, and I would love to see what you create when you get there 🙂

You are so sweet Tracy, thank you and see you at the next party.
Chas, you have great ideas!
You are so sweet Sylvia, thank you very much.
Lot’s of clever ideas. I’m actually looking for something to hang wind chimes on. I need to go poke around my local thrift stores. Who knows what I might find!
Thank you Donna and love that you’ll go looking at thrift stores to find something for your chimes. Can’t wait to see what you do 🙂
The solar light chandelier in the gazebo is my favorite. Great find! Heading over to check out the solar-powered pump. Never heard of those before.
Thank you Audra and thanks for sharing your favorite, it’s one of mine too 🙂 The solar powered pump is so much fun, I enjoy it while drinking my coffee in the mornings.
You are just so creative! I am amazed at the many in this post. What fun! Now you have me thinking about adding more solar lights to my balcony.
Thank you so much Michelle, you are so kind. Yes once you start working solar lights it can become addicting as to all of the possibilities 🙂 My kids say they need to wear sunglasses at night because of all my crazy solar lights
Lots more fun ideas, I love the solar fountain in the fondue pot – I would never have thought of that!
Thank you so much Julie, and thanks for sharing your favorite. I love that one too because it can be used both day and night.
Thank you for sharing at #OverTheMoon. Pinned and shared.
Thank you Marilyn, I appreciate it – have a lovely weekend.
Love your fountains and chandeliers, Chas.. So smart and pretty!
Thank you so much Julie, I appreciate it. Hope you’re having a great weekend.
All these ideas are so creative, Chas. I particularly like the vignette you have created by your pathway! I hope you are doing well, and I do thank you for sharing with the Hearth and Soul Link Party.
Thank you so much April and I love that little vignette area too – it’s right by my dining set outside. Thanks for hosting such a lovely party, and I’ll see you at the next one.
