Lovely metal art!

We live on a canal in Florida, so wanted to use these sculptures on my mantle in the sun room overlooking the water where we see these majestic birds (live) every day. Very happy with the quality and substantial weight! Now to get a nature picture to replace the flowers!

Cute Bear family

Good substance to the piece. Adorable features.

sun, moon, stars by the pool...

Got tired watching, even after caring for them, plants dying by the pool and where once hung a plant I now have the very lovely copper colored sun, moon and stars....

An Excellent Gift Purchase

This order was a Christmas gift for a family member. She absolutely loved it and hung it up the next day in her backyard, even while it was snowing. The birdhouse was exactly as expected and the transaction/delivery went 100% smoothly. I would highly recommend others invest in this product if interested, and I thank Happy Gardens for a quick and easy order process!

Cute Family of Bears

Cute little family of bears! My reason for 4 stars is the big bear had several strings of glue trailing around the bear that had to be removed. But they pulled off easily and now Papa Bear is perfect. This bear family is just right!

Three DIY Garden Projects for Winter

Posted by Happy Gardens on

It’s cold out there! As much as we love the great outdoors, there are some days when it’s just too frigid to step outside. When this happens, there’s nothing better than a hot cup of tea and a fun do-it-yourself (DIY) project. 

Here are three of our favorite DIY projects that’ll help you beautify your outdoor space as soon as the weather allows:

  1. DIY Lanterns
  2. DIY Indoor Herb Garden
  3. DIY Terrarirum

1. DIY Lanterns

Happy Gardens - Twine Lantern

Nothing warms up an icy, gray day like the warm, yellow glow of candlelight. That’s why lanterns are at the very top of our list for do-it-yourself projects. 

While there are several ways to make a lantern, we are partial to the methods that encourage upcycling. (Upcycling, by the way, refers to the creative reuse of unwanted materials--right on!) 

One great way to make your own lantern requires mason jars (or old pasta sauce jars!), cool rocks and stones, a tea candle or LED tea light and twine. This illuminating, elegant-but-earthy style of lantern is perfect for hanging on a shabby-chic terrace or from your favorite tree.

Best of all, you can use these lanterns the same day you make them by hanging them indoors. Just be sure to use LED tea lights so there’s no fire risk!

2. DIY Indoor Herb Garden

Happy Gardens - Indoor Herb Garden

Just because it’s too chilly to grow herbs doesn’t mean your dinner recipes won’t call for everyday ones like basil, rosemary or parsley. Why buy them every time a soup, stew or pasta dish calls for just a tablespoon or two?

It’s easy to grow herbs indoors during the colder months, no fancy greenhouse or expensive technology required. Any wall storage system, like those sold at IKEA or The Container Store, can be used to create an indoor, wall-mounted herb garden. Or you can use an old bookshelf, run-of-the-mill planters, old cans, anything really!

What’s most important is that you offer your herbs the right amount of sun, great drainage and adequate water.

3. DIY Pebble Terrarium

Happy Gardens - Terrarium

A terrarium can bring the energy and earthiness of the outdoors into your home, especially during those weekend cold fronts when leaving the house just isn’t going to happen.

Making a terrarium is easy and fun. Simply choose a succulent or two and purchase aquarium gravel, river stones, paper and a glass container like a cylindrical vase. 

You’ll want to follow steps closely here, because the goal is to keep those succulents alive and well. 

Terrariums also make great gifts, centerpieces and bedside table accessories.

Whether you choose to spend your January counting down the days until spring or savoring every last minute of winter is up to you. Either way, these three do-it-yourself winter projects will help fill an afternoon or two or three with fun, creativity and a little bit of greenery.
