My friend Carlene at Organized Clutter took an old kitchen sink and turned it into a wonderful potting bench. Carlene is amazing at creating lovely vignettes like this.

Air plants are often quite small. That makes them perfect for these adorable Sea Shell Planters from the Air Plant Shop. Love this look! Be sure to check out this post for more creative air plant holders.
Dave 450 on Etsy use polished stones to make flowers and dragonflies for your garden. He has many designs available in his shop.
How adorable are these unique rock hedgehogs featured on Live Internet Russian? If you have a creative talent, you could fashion something like this from hypertufa cement and polished rocks.
Topiary is the practice of pruning or clipping plants into interesting shapes. These Toad stool topiaries are amazing. Shelly from Sow & Dippity snapped the photo at Vandusen Gardens on a visit at Christmas
Got a tired and worn out Vintage Chair? Do what The T Cozy did. Turn it into a chair planter. The dramatic coleus plant adds so much color. Coleus is grown for it’s colorful foliage and it put to great use here..

I love using common household items to turn them into creative gardening projects. This fun coffee pot terrarium used to give me a morning cup of coffee. Now it houses some small succulents and air plants. Charming!
I have seen vintage tea pots used as bird feeders before. This adorable design from Not on the High Street has such a nostalgic design.
Don’t throw those broken plant pots away! This idea from Hardly Housewives shows them using the pieces to turn them into herb garden markers. I have done something similar in one of my projects. I turned some old wooden spoon into garden markers.
I am a fan of garden seating areas. I have them in almost all of my garden beds. This lovely garden swing hangs from a pergola that is surrounded by a landscaped garden setting. I cannot find the original source but found this on Pinterest and wanted to share it for inspiration.
Mother Nature is creative all on her own! Bromeliads are so unusual – at first they look quite ordinary and then a pod emerges from their centers. Once this opens you are in for a treat. They display the most spectacular and unusual “flowers”.
