Since I’ve been working on my garden all summer I’ve been wondering how to change every day things into garden accessories.
This time it was a wooden chair just taking up space in the garage. This chair was not comfortable so I didn’t feel bad at all about having my husband cut a hole through the seat.
I saw how cute this looked on Pinterest, of course. What a fun idea. So the circle was traced, hole was cut and planter placed in.
Now I have a sitting plant to share my sitting garden with.
I have a few sheets that have torn and we no longer use them anymore but I’ve kept them around just in case I might find some sort of need of them. Well I finally did.
I wanted to make a simple summer wreath for my front door with things I had in my craft box. I wrapped around part of the sheet as the first layer of the wreath to add girth. I tore the queen size sheet into 4 long strips and only needed one.
Then I grabbed scraps of burlap, ribbons, an S that I spray painted gold, a flower clip, and a button. Lastly I hot glued all the different layers of things to complete our family initial summer wreath.
I also was able to use a small scrap of this soft sheet for the inside of my daughter’s shirt. The decal that was stitched in scratched her chest and she would never wear it. I finally bought some fabric glue and glued a small piece of sheet to the inside covering the area. Now it’s soft and washable and is worn at least once a week, since it is Hello Kitty after all.
Any other ideas you can share for re-using sheets?
