5 Upcycled and Unique Garden Ideas for Spring!

Upcycled and Unique Garden Ideas for Spring

Are you loving spring as much as I am? I’m loving the gorgeous weather, and, despite my allergies, I’m even loving the beautiful flowers! All of this beauty inspires me to create my own slice of spring in my yard. This week I found 5 upcycled and unique projects to get us started!

1. Mailbox Planters by Nest Full of Eggs

Rachel at Nest Full of Eggs shares a picture of these adorable mailbox planters from a home tour! I love the rustic and vintage look that old mailboxes can bring to a porch or patio. Plus, this is such a cool way to show off all of your little potted plants! Start looking for mailboxes at thrift stores, garage sales, and even in the trash. You never know what you might find!
