I love upcycling and repurposing items for my yard. It creates a happy place and a new space to decorate!
Upcycled Items For Your Backyard Video
Solar Garden Flowers –
These are standing candle holders that has vines. I placed a glass lamp shade and candle holders on top to make the illusion of a flower. I placed a solar light minus the stem in the center of the flower.
Solar Owl –
I found this owl on clearance at Walmart and I had to add a solar light in a ball jar to the center of him.
I used E6000 to glue some dishes together and let that dry. I then glued the dishes onto a bent stainless fork handle and staked it into the ground. I have also glued them to broken solar lights, bent spoons, etc. You can find the full tutorial here – Garden Flowers Made From Dishes
Here is the full display of my dish flowers complete with a pouring copper tea kettle on a Shepard hook. The other flowers are copper pipe that I cut into different lengths and placed glass door know handles into them.
Pouring Watering Can –
I placed a galvanized watering can onto a small Dollar Tree Shepard hook. I then clipped on beads to the spout for the pouring illusion. You can find the full tutorial here – Watering Can Yard Decor
Tea Cup Bird Feeder –
I found this broken candle holder minus the glass at a thrift store. I E6000 3 tea cup/punch cups into the holes and let that dry. I then filled them with bird seed and water. You can find the full tutorial here – Candle Holder to Tea Cup Holder – 3 Options
Pumpkin Solar Light –
This is a glass pumpkin that I found at a thrift store. I added a cylinder vase from Dollar Tree to the center and added a solar light to the top of it. You can find the full tutorial here – Pumpkin Candle Holder Upcycles
We placed 3 cinder blocks on either side, and slid in 4×4 wood that we treated with polyurethane to create a bench.
Dish Angel –
Table Top Gazing Ball/Garden Globe –
I hot glued dollar store rocks on a dollar store vase/candle holder. After all of the rocks were in place I E6000 glued between all of the rocks to make sure they’d stick in the fluctuating temperatures outside. I let that dry completely. I placed it upside down on a flat pillar candle holder base. You can add a light inside and it’s absolutely beautiful. You can find the full tutorial here – Table Top Gazing Ball/Garden Globe
Garden Noise Makers –
Get rid of critters by hanging things that make noise in your garden. I strung together mini terra cotta pots on a string to create a windchime. I hung a ladle on on a Shepard hook that clangs with the breeze. You can find more here – Keep Pests Out Of Your Garden
