Corner Bookmarks

posted these on Trash to Treasure also....found the orange printed one at the dollar store for a buck, figured out how to make a template after a few tries, and made these very quickly. I read a lot, so does everyone I know, so this is a useful and beautiful craft. You can use corners of envelopes,too...re-cycle your junk mail :)

My latest project-whadda ya think of it?

posted by: nmgirl on 02.03.2008 at 07:32 pm in Garden Junk Forum

I've been wanting to dig into my glass stash and play but have been a little low on ideas. I made a lot of bells for Christmas gifts and don't currently have room for another plant stand in the house or topiary in the yard. Since,according to my daughter, I am a "bird nerd" I thought I'd try making a bird feeder.
I used a small 3 section relish dish, a ginger jar shaped piece of glass I rescued from a lamp and a glass cabinet knob. I thought I'd make a small feeder for the wee ones, chickadees and such. I've filled it with black oil sunflower seed and am hoping that the birdies will take to it.

Candy Cane Candle holder?

posted by: gram_nh on 11.22.2006 at 07:17 am in Crafts and Decorations Forum

Has anyone done the tapered candles with the candy canes hot glued, upside down around them? I have done them for the past few years but can't seem to find any on the web anywhere. The site below uses the pillar candle but I use the tall taper ones. I am trying to explain it to one of my webpals. It is the quickest and easiest gift for teachers, neighbors, work buddies. Cheap and easy...but oh so beautiful! If anyone has a site or a pic of one...it would be much appreciated!

Obelisk birdfeeder

posted by: luvs2click on 01.02.2008 at 05:28 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Some might remember the obelisk my DH made me out of old decking boards and branches. We used it to grow cukes in my small garden. I found this large birdfeeder at a garage sale for $1, and it fits nicely on top. So now it does double duty. The feeder has a screen bottom and is quite large. We had several inches of snow today again.....I like the first picture better!

I saw these at an craft festival and decided to try my hand at making them. It was surprisingly easy to do so! And the spoons make a really nice sound when a breeze hits them. This one and one other are going to be christmas gifts and then I'll make one for my own garden.

Saw these dish flowers this weekend. Aren't they cool? Carol asked the lady if she could take a picture and post them. The lady even helped Carol take the pictures! (I was too shy to ask!) She was excited to hear about the GardenWeb Junk forum. Aren't they neat flowers? Kirk

Pics of my floating planters and some pond pics

posted by: koijoyii on 06.04.2007 at 09:35 am in Ponds & Aquatic Plants Forum

Still have work to do on hiding the liner around the edges. Just went through a massive algae bloom. You can see white streaks on the liner and rocks from the algae I pulled out but missed cleaning up. Ordered an Algae Witch which couldn't help my algae bloom. Used someone's advice on the forum (can't remember who) and used a leaf rake. You would not believe the algae I pulled out with that rake. Must have been 50 lbs. or more. Piled it around my hydraegna (sp) bush.

Here are some pics of my floating planters nosambos posted directions for. I don't cover my noodles with material. Sort of like the way the blue noodles contrast with the dark liner.

Someone splain to me please why this works

posted by: blueyz75 on 05.27.2007 at 10:19 pm in Ponds & Aquatic Plants Forum

http://www.koiclay.com/diy/pg1.htm

If you go all the way to the bottom, last picture where there is a valve like off the house for the garden hose is shown. I thought what a good idea I'll use that when I make my skippy stock tank bio filter. I however am thinking about it now that I got the tank set, and for the life of me can't figure out how that should actually work.
In my head, water seeks its own level. I'd have to raise the hose above the level of the water in the stock tank to rinse the filter material. I am thinking its like when you would try to raise a hose your siphoning with, if you go above the level of the water, nothing will come out of the hose. The water in the hose would be level with water in tank and none would come out to clean the filter.
Where is my "thinking" flaw?
What follows in their explaination.
"Open the 3" knife valve and drain the water to a garden or waste. Leave the pump running. Once the tank has drained and the water is rinsing the bottom of the tank connect a short garden hose to the spigot. Open the spigot and slowly close the ball valve on the inlet pipe until you have a good stream of water coming from the hose and rinse the filter media from the top down. Once you have drained 10% of the pond water shut the 3" knife valve and add fresh water to replace what you drained out. Always use a dechlorinator when adding new water. If the filtration is shut down during the winter you can disconnect this type of ball valve after you drain the tank.

Hi All,

Heres a couple of my current vintage window projects. Not looking foward to the grinding and gluing of the pieces of the blue rose panel!!!! I got wise with the butterfly panel and cut and ground each piece as I went along! I used Klingers great idea of using a glass lid for the centre of one of the flowers (thanks klinger!) :)
I actually got a useful mothers day present this year! I received a hefty gift voucher for my local glass supply shop! Cant wait to go shopping! Thanks baby girl!!!

Until next time,

Rain Chains

posted by: kudzukween on 05.10.2007 at 11:33 am in Garden Junk Forum

Ever since I saw rain chains on here a couple years back, I wanted some. I thought I could find some copper measuring cups,or figure out a way to make some somehow. Never happened...BUT I got this catalog yesterday called Collections Etc.,and they have some very pretty ones for only $15.99. It has 10 copper colored tulips,seems like a deal to me,considering the ones I looked up were around $160 to over $299. There's quite a few other things in the catalog I liked,too.

Want a small pond for memorial garden.

posted by: hbwright on 03.05.2007 at 11:31 am in Ponds & Aquatic Plants Forum

My mother had a memorial plaque made for my dog Cleo and of course I need to build a garden for the plaque. I have a small, 10 x 10 space beside my deck that I would like build a water garden in. I can go beyond that but really want to stay within that area so I don't have to really think about tying in with the rest of the yard, go in front of fence and beyond existing patio. I'm thinking the pond size approximately 3 x 5 or so so I'll have room for landscaping around it. I'll also use rock that I've found and from the construction site behind us and hopefully just fill in with pebble to help cut cost.

This project was not budgetted in to my landscape plans for the year so I'm looking to get it done as cheap as possible. Perhapse 150.00 or so for the pond itself. I have all the plants besides some water plants and mulch/soil is no problem.

My children would like a few goldfish (3 would be pleanty--1 for each kid). I am in zone 7b northern South Carolina. What size pond could I get away with while allowing for some water plants and a few goldfish? Are there any easy preformed or liner kits that are worth looking into?

shriek!! my frying pan arrived!!!

posted by: curbdiver1954 on 01.30.2007 at 07:42 pm in Stained Glass & Mosaics Forum

Long day at work with a tedious meeting, cranky people, cold room, bad traffic coming home...pulled in the drive and **thought** I saw a box on the porch. Gotta admit my first thought was "What did they (corporate office) send out now?!?" You wouldn't believe the thrill I got when I read the return address and realized IT was HERE!!!

Dropped everything I was carrying on the porch, swooped up the box and almost couldn't calm my excitement enough to dare to use a knife to open it! Could it be....could **I** be THAT lucky....to get the fry pan designed by the person whose work I REALLY want to emmulate....YES!!! It was from Slowmedown! My entire bad day vanished in an instant when I got it unwrapped.

Thank you, slowmedown!! It is glorious!! Even more beautiful in person...my camera didn't do justice to the vibrant colors! The crown is perfect - and she titled it "Queen of My Kitchen"! In a note with it she said, "The idea is that when you look in this mirror, you'll see a QUEEN, thence the large crown....Don't Mess with a Queen!"

I managed to get these two shots, then my camera battery died...will pick some up tomorrow and post a shot of the artist card she sent with it!

new glass hanging thingy (aka hanging totem)

posted by: cindee11461 on 01.08.2007 at 05:17 pm in Garden Junk Forum

OK I need a name for these things. I guess basically its a hanging totem? So I guess that is what I should call them(-: I went out on a limb here and tried to mosaic on a bottle.(thanks for everyones inspiration to try this)..the reason was because I have been saving these bottles my son drinks the beverage and the words are painted/baked on the glass so you can't remove them. SO I thought why not try this! So I did and it turned out pretty good I think. I used more recycled beads and copper tubing for the rest of it. The mosaic stuff I got on 50% off at Michaels(-:

Who Remembers Polish Balls?

posted by: foxesearth on 11.29.2006 at 06:56 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Do not confuse polish balls with mulch balls, which are coated on the outside. I haven't seen one in a long, long time here. About the time we started making totems, polish balls were popular. I never made one, so I can't show you.

Somebody post one, please!

Glass on Glass in old window frames

posted by: toomuchglass on 10.29.2006 at 08:23 pm in Stained Glass & Mosaics Forum

At my last craft fair - the guy across from me had the most beautiful old glass windows .His wife did one stroke paintings in every section. ( Would have looked awesome with a mosaic ) My question is - where do you hang such a large piece ? I know people here use old windows - how do you display them ? Where ? They should be somewhere that the sun shines through it,right ?
That's the one thing that's stopping me from doing it - where do I put it ???

My sister gave me this umbrella and i cut off the material that was faded and torn and wrapped vines on it then i'm putting some lights on it. She gave the table too. I spray painted the pole to the umbrella to match the table. The pictures i'm putting on here are when i was wrapping the vines on it and when i finished putting them on it. I still going to put more lights on it but i went and took a picture of what i got on it now before it got dark. Brenda

hubcap flowers

posted by: sandlady on 09.03.2006 at 06:41 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Hello! I've been lurking and learning here, and getting inspired! Love the way you all share ideas and help each other out. Thought I'd share one of my quick easy projects with you. These are big flowers made from old hubcaps, my daughter got a real kick out of making them. We just cleaned up the hubcaps with soap & water, spray painted them with the paint that works on plastics, and used old junk garden hose for the stems, then after I had them hung on the unused outbuilding she painted leaves. I think it made that old eyesore look almost cheery. (This is the first time I am trying to post a picture.)

I picked up this headboard at the curb a couple of years ago,and finally got DS to make a bench out of it for me.The color didn't show true on the picture.I painted it a sage green.
Not sure that this will be its final resting place,rather think it will look better under our willow tree.

Finished Bed Bench

posted by: tasymo on 08.21.2006 at 09:05 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Hello Everyone-
Well, I took the plunge and started breaking dishes!! Here's the results of my first mosaic endeavor. I really shouldn't have done my first project on rounded finials, a flat object would have been much easier, but... I'm still quite pleased with the results. The finials have a few rough spots that concern me though. Is it possible to grind down a few of the sharp edges with a dremel to avoid scratches? When the grout dries throughly I think I'll give the whole thing a good coat of marine varnish.

Old bunk beds = twin garden benches :o)

posted by: ruralgardener on 07.25.2006 at 09:33 am in Garden Junk Forum

Hubby and I spent a few hours on Saturday putting together garden benches made from some scrap wood and old bunk beds that have been sitting in our garage rafters for MANY years.

I am happy with how they came out. We put a coat of paint on them last night and I took the second picture. I want to paint them a brighter color eventually, but this outdoor antique white was something that we already had so I figured we might as well get a base coat on them until I decide what color they should be.

Bench Picture

posted by: mnchris on 06.13.2006 at 11:46 am in Garden Junk Forum

I have been watching & learning from these boards for along time now and thought that I would finally try to post a picture of my own. So bear with me, in case I don't get it on the first try. The headboard/footboard were a garage sale find and this is my first bench. I think it needs a cushion or something yet, but was happy with it.

My first bench.....

Used a twin size, just as a test, before we use the wooden full size one in the attic.

First Garden Junk post- headboard bench :)

posted by: spy_ri on 05.02.2006 at 06:31 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Hi! I lurk here a *lot* and am so inspired by all the great projects you guys seem to make constantly! Well, I finally made something I'm happy enough about to post and introduce myself with! I loved the headboard benches I'd seen here, and found a headboard at a yardsale, it seemed like fate! There was no footboard, so I didn't get to do the sides, but just got some wood and made the seat, and the legs were those turned wood ones from HD. I love to make stuff, but you guys are so creative I've been intimidated! I'm usually in the Cottage Garden or New England forums, but I love to read here and hopefully will post more if I can make anything neat!

I made this out of a $1.00 spindle I cut in half and some buckets.

Your Favourite GJ-show and tell time

posted by: melissaincanada on 07.27.2006 at 06:12 pm in Garden Junk Forum

I've been here for several years, on and off as life permits, under various login names (as memory comes and goes) and the inspiration never stops. I've been looking through old messages lately and marvelling at lots of old entries.

I was thinking it would be great to start a fresh thread where everyone posts or reposts a picture of what they consider to be one of their top favourite garden junk items. Yes, it's like picking your favourite child, but try and just pick one (or maybe two if you're prone to having twins-lol).

I think newcomers would love a thread like this where they can see all the favourites in one place. So, please do be boastful, or if you have a favourite that someone else made, point us to that. Post a pic and tell us why you love it (beauty, frugality, ingenuity, it fits perfectly in the garden, you didn't think you could make something like that, or whatever). Just show some garden junk you love.

Here's mine. My garden chandeliers. I made them from old lamp shades and kitchen colanders, copper wire and marbles, chandelier crystals, plastic beads... I love them because they're pretty, quirky, were made from a bunch of stuff I had lying around, and they endure Canadian winters.

I hope everyone will join in. It's not a competition, just a fun show and tell.

My retired tools

posted by: craftygardener on 08.12.2006 at 07:12 am in Garden Junk Forum

I worked on one of my little recycling projects yesterday. I hate throwing things away, especially garden tools. I now have a trellis full of "retired tools" and it includes an old nozel that now gives a virtual spray over the vines. I always had a couple of old shovel heads on this trellis but now it has lots of company. Have a look at my retired tools.
