I love celebrating the 4th of July with my family on Cape Cod. I have fond memories as a little girl playing with sparklers. In fact, we looked forward to them each year. Unfortunately, fireworks, and yes-sadly sparklers, are illegal in the state of Massachusetts. This year I thought that it would be fun to make some sparklers out of glitter bombed tulle fabric from my local fabric store. With a little bit of help from the kiddos and bit in ingenuity, we were able to make these sparkler beauties to bring the the local parade.
I just adore succulents. Today I wanted to show you how to make this succulent wreath. To make a succulent wreath like this, I borrow bits and pieces from larger plants in my garden.
I’m always looking for ways to upcycle and re-purposed worn out items in the garden. In my latest craft for HGTV Gardens, I turned a leaking garden hose into a harvest basket for the vegetable garden. Of course, it has many more uses including toting around garden tools, holding weeds and it even works as a nice place to corral and wash off your produce before bringing them into the kitchen.
