25 Clay Pot DIY Projects to Beautify Your Garden
When spring is on the way, you might be thinking about planting a garden. It's cool that there are a lot of different fun diy projects you can try out online and it's even better when someone puts all of their favourite ones in one, easy to access list. Bees DIY shares all of their favourite clay pot diy ideas that they've found around the internet that will help you beautify your garden space. All you'll need are some terra cotta pots which you can find at affordable prices at most home improvement stores or even at a dollar store. If you can't find what you're looking for there, you can also check any garden centres, and they will definitely have what you're looking for. You can also find some recycled clay pots at garage sales and thrift stores or maybe even in your own gardening shed. That way you can repurpose them instead of throwing them out. These fun diy projects can be used in any size of garden, even on a balcony that you have set up a little garden space on. It's actually quite amazing what you can do with just a little space. If you have kids, these diy ideas would also make some great projects and crafts for them to make when they're not in school.
The first one on the list of diy ideas is the Clay Pot Critter diy. This one is a great way to brighten up any outdoor area, and they would be perfect to make with kids. You can make all kinds of different animals and creatures like a butterfly or a ladybug. There's even a frog and a bumblebee. You simply paint the pots different colours with acrylic paints depending on what kind of animal or bug you want to make. For a fancier garden decoration, you can try recycling an old chandelier into a hanging planter. All you do is take the old chandelier and spray paint it any colour you like, then attach some small terra cotta pots to it and plant your favourite plants in them. Or you could make it into a bird feeder as well. If you love to grow your own herbs you can create a beautiful herb tower out of a bunch of different sized terra cotta pots. All you do is insert a small pot into each of the large pots to act as a pedestal for them to sit on and then place another pot on top of it to create a layered effect. You can even recycle old broken terra cotta planters into cool diy ideas. Just check out the diy succulent gardens on Bees DIy made of broken pieces of terra cotta pots. You can add in some moss and fairy ornaments to make a magical looking mini garden.
When you want to add a splash of colour to your yard or outdoor area, just with an ombre paint effect. That way you can implement a bunch of different colours instead of just one flat colour. There's also a diy project for making a fun bird bath using broken CDs or DVDs. Just use the pieces of the broken disks to create a mosaic in your birdbath made with a large shallow dish attached to a clay pot. You can also use the water catching trays that go under the clay pots as the dish for your brid feeder and stack them on top of each other to create a lovely natural looking birdbath or birdfeeder.
