    Garden Thyme, Summer

    August Garden Flower Power

    Long-blooming perennials and annuals provide color and texture in an August garden that will last through early fall!

     

    Hello garden lovers! Can you believe it is almost mid-August? It’s time for back-to-school,  so I have been working hard on all of my late summer chores. This past week I replaced some dead annuals with those that will last through September, and I even maganged to create some new garden spaces during my last week of summer break. School actually starts back for me today, but I had some time this weeked to take a few pictures to share for this fun “Late Summer Flower Power” blog hop hosted by my friend Cecilia of My Thrift Store Addiction!

    Ho-Hum Plastic Hummingbird to “Vintage” Copper Garden Ornament (Easy DIY Dollar Store Hack!)

    DIY Vintage Copper Patina Dollar Store Garden Stake Makeover

    Hello there friends, I am excited to share another DIY dollar store hack with you today! Yesterday I gave a plastic “ho-hum” hummingbird garden stake from Family Dollar a DIY faux copper makeover using paints I had on hand in my craft stash. Recently I started creating a small hummingbird garden, so when I saw a plastic hummingbird garden stake for only $1.00 I figured it was worth a try to give it a quick makeover. I had originally intended to make it look white-washed and chippy, but it turned into an experimental project where I just kept trying different colors that led to a faux copper patina ( you will find all the details toward the end of the post.) I love how it turned out! *This post contains affiliate links.
