Why have a plain patio when you can have one embossed with beautiful shards of china crockery?
Reusing old china for patio slabs and stepping stones is a great way to add colour and style to your outdoor space.
To make your own broken china patio slabs, you will need:
• Broken china
• Paving stones
Simply mix up your cement and cover the slab with a small layer. Then arrange your broken china on the cement and leave to dry!

Add charm to your flower beds and lawn edges with cute little insect characters!
All you need for this garden art project is:
• Golf balls
• Durable paint
You can create cute little garden insects, like ladybugs and bumblebees, by painting golf balls. This is a great relaxation activity and something the whole family can get involved with.

If you’re looking for garden wall art that’s sure to catch visitors eye, hanging frames are the perfect solution.
To create your frames, you need four old pieces of wood that can be used to build the frame. Once fixed to the wall, you can let your creativity flourish!
Adding succulents or twigs and cross sections from branches works particularly well.
This garden art craft couldn’t be easier. All you need is some plastic bottles – the more colourful the better.
To create this effective wind spiral, all you need to do is cut around the bottle, starting at the base, gradually moving up the bottle about an inch at a time until you reach the bottle neck. Then, create a hole at the top of the bottle and thread with string for a hanger.
You should be left with a beautiful spiral that will glimmer in the light and also help deter some pests such as birds.
