5 Garden Crafts To Enjoy This Summer

This year summer looks a little different – we’re all spending a lot more time at home. But even though plans are cancelled and holidays are off, there’s still sunny weather to enjoy! It’s no surprise that we all want our gardens to look as nice as possible, so to help you make the most of your own private sanctuary, we’ve rounded up five of the cutest outdoor crafts.

5 Garden Crafts To Enjoy This Summer

1. Fairy house

Add a hint of whimsical charm to your garden with a carefully crafted fairy house. This little cottage can be made from things you find around the garden, such as sticks, moss, leaves and petals. Not only does it look great, you may even encourage a few fairies to make a visit, too! Check out a tutorial for this cosy make here.

2. Lollipop stick bird house

To encourage a different kind of garden visitor, why not try this colourful lollipop stick birdhouse? Feathered friends will love stopping by for a snack in this bright and cheery feeder. It’s so simple to make, and it’s a great excuse to work your way through the delicious treats in your freezer! Find out how to make Penelope Quinn’s mini-home here.

3. Plant pot

Animal lovers, unite! This DIY plant pot is a great way to get acquainted with a new material – clay beginners can follow our easy step-by-step tutorial to create a purr-fect pot in no time at all! Why not take it a step further and create a whole range of animals for a mini plant pot zoo?

4. Rock garden markers

If you’re a green-fingered crafter, these hand-painted plant markers will make a real impact in your garden. Spend a relaxing evening painting a few smooth rocks with bright colours and intricate patterns, then arrange them in your vegetable patch to identify each plant with ease. Why not coordinate your markers to the colour of the plant they’ll sit next to?

5. Pinwheel

Pinwheels are a British classic – almost every child has enjoyed spinning one on a warm sunny day! That makes this project the perfect family activity, as kids and adults alike can enjoy picking out the perfect paper and embellishments to decorate their pinwheels. Follow this tutorial to get the folds exactly right, but feel free to experiment with colours and size as much as you wish!
