Last week I shared some of my favorite summer weekend projects. While perusing my favorite craft blogs, I found more to add to my list of craft projects! I love having craft projects around my home, why not outdoors too?
When I saw this Outdoor Table Makeover tutorial, I thought I needed to make this, NOW! The succulent plant in the middle is genius and it looks stylish. Succulents are “air plants” and do not need to be planted in soil, and survive by their ability to retain water. Succulents are the perfect plant for this project. The new coat of varnish makes the table really shine.
I’ve made stepping stones for my garden before but never thought of this, adding leaf imprints! There are so many large leaves with great shape. I think these Leaf Imprint Stepping Stones would look great on your front porch, by your front door, in the garden, or as a gift…
I don’t think I could write about outdoor crafting without mentioning Outdoor Mod Podge. Outdoor Mod Podge will seal and protect decoupage and painted surfaces from outdoor elements. It will even seal wood, terra cotta, slate, tin and even more surfaces.
Check out this DIY Mini Plant Stand tutorial. You could decoupage anything onto this, think of the possibilities!
