Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcyled Garden Goodies

I would think some of your gardens are coming along pretty good now. Up here in the north country we have a few more weeks to go before we plant the flowers and outdoor vegie gardens. I thought today we would look at some upcycled items that you can put in your gardens to add a little whimsical flair to them. Let's visit some Etsy shops to see what they have. :)

Every garden, be it flowers or vegie gardens, needs a bird feeder close by and this neat upcylcled Mason Jar bird feeder from RecyclingTime fits the bill for that. 

How about this different wind chime. It is made from a recycled water pitcher and spoons for the chimes. How cool would this be hanging on post in your garden! :)

Now every garden area needs a birdhouse to go along with the bird feeder you have. This recycled birdhouse from OutOnALimbADK even has a recycled slate roof. How neat!

And a garden wouldn't be a garden without a sign. How about this upcycled sign! How different is this one. It is made from recycled license plates. What a cool idea. And 1BentKeepsake has this and several other signs made from license plates.

Looks like there are a lot of ideas for goodies for your gardens. Just make a trip to your local thrift store and see what ideas you can come up with or just visit all the great Etsy shops. 

Happy Gardening!
