Miniature Garden Tool Wreath

Miniature Garden Tool WreathWhile summer isn’t my absolute favorite season, I find that I enjoy tending to my rose bushes and small vegetable garden in the cool hours of the morning. It has become a sort of working meditation and I almost always feel much calmer and happier after a couple of hours tending my 2 acres.

What better way to celebrate summer and the growing/gardening season than with this wreath? Its small size makes it perfect for windows and interior doors. It would be a lovely handmade gift to take to a friend or family member who can’t get out much any more. A nice way to bring a little of the garden INSIDE.

Directions:

I always begin wreaths by laying out some of the items I have to work with around the perimeter of the wreath to get a good idea of where I want to place them.

The flowers I used in this project are from my stash of flowers that have been left over from various floral projects, but you can pick up mixed flower bushes at lots of craft stores. I’ve even seen them at the dollar stores!

Once you are happy with the basic layout begin wiring the watering can, wheelbarrow and garden tools onto the wreath. Wrap the wire over a bit on the item and give it a couple of twists to secure and then feed the wire into and between the grapevine and twist the ends together in the back. Cut the wires short and then work them into the grapevine so they are less likely to scratch walls and doors.

Miniature Garden Tool WreathI found that the handle of the tools wanted to slip inside the wire that was wrapped around the handles, so I gave them a dot of glue and glued them to the wire to keep them in place.

To make the bandana “bow” I folded the bandana in half, point to point, and using my rotary cutter cut a 3 inch section out of the middle.

When you open it up it will be 6 inches wide with a finished point on each end.

Tie into a bow. Don’t worry about it being perfect or the ends being the same length.

Cut the left over corners and wrap the covered wire as shown above.

Wire the two tails onto the wreath and then wire the bow on top of them. Adjust to your liking.

To finish up, make sure all of the flowers are glued securely, using your hot glue gun helpers to push the hot glue into the areas that you need it.

Keep in mind that with the bandana bow, this wreath will look nice much longer if it’s kept indoors. If you wish to put your wreath outside, you might want to make a bow with more weather proof ribbon.

Western gardening book. The way to get rid of

It is simple. If you want to control bamboo from spreading you dig a trench around it. About 1 foot deep did it for me.
The roots need to be removed from the soil. If you want you can remove the soil and pay to have tons of it hauled away.
Bamboo is fairly light, a chipper shredder takes care of the plant very well. Looping shears at the ground level works best for me.
The roots are another problem. You need to sharpen these tools very carefully. A Pick Mattock ~ Cutter Mattock ~ Pick Axe. It will cut up the roots and dirt. Make sure the ground is wet! Sharpen a good shovel to very sharp

  • Avatar the khemist I need a decent craft modelling website with tutorials, images and handy tips so I make my own models?
    Mar 17, 2009 by the khemist | Posted in Hobbies & Crafts

    After my exams in psychology, I was considering going into modelling (I'm not talking about beauty here!

    because I have about 5 months or so of freedom, I've put of my creative interests for science and part …' as much as possible (avoiding shortcuts)

    Thank you! I am struggling to find anything useful on the internet, when I looked up 'growing moss for modelling' all the search engines talk about is Kate Moss! :(

    • For most everything you're seeking (except for the mini-bricks)... you'd want to look into Dollhouse building or Architectural modeling (we Yanks spell it with one "L", and therefore so do most search engines).

      I'm mostly a builder of N and HO scale model buildings, but here are some sites that might help:
