June 4, 2018

While container gardening is a great solution if you have little or no space in your garden, it has also evolved as a creative way to add color and personality to your exterior.

We have rounded up some of our favorite creative container garden “how-tos” to inspire some new outdoor DIY projects.

This DIY terrarium, which uses a $7.99 IKEA lantern as a base, could not be simpler. It can also easily be transferred inside at the end of the summer.

We love this creative upcycling (literally)! Deborah from DIY Home & Garden gave a rusty old bike new life with baskets filled with sunflowers and impatiens.

Rescuing a forgotten chandelier from your neighborhood thrift store can give new life to your front porch, eave or even a backyard tree. This simple and rewarding DIY is something you can do in about an hour.
