As we are still in lockdown here in Ireland, I wanted to add more into my weekly uploads, and I have three DIY garden project ideas in this week’s video. I am sharing how to make a garden apron, easy sew, of course. I played with clay, and I am showing you how to make clay plant labels. I recycled an old cabinet into a mini greenhouse too!

Easy Sew Garden Apron

I have been spending a lot more time in the garden in the past few weeks. It has become an extra room in my home. I am also loving the beautiful weather we have been having. I wanted to sew myself a small apron as I am forever leaving down my tools and forgetting where I put them. I also needed somewhere to pop my phone into, As I use it to listen to audiobooks while I am in the garden.
If you want to learn to make your garden apron, then press play on the video below. I have timestamps to each DIY garden project included in the intro to the video.

Clay Garden Pot labels

I love playing with clay. I feel like a child again when I play with clay. I used some air-drying clay to create these plant labels. I will link to some clay here from Amazon. I warmed the clay in my hands before rolling it out on a mat. I then used some individual letter stampers to add names to my clay labels. I then allowed them to air-dry overnight. Once dry, I applied a coat of clear varnish to them. You can get creative and paint yours using some acrylic paint. I am guilty of forgetting to labels my seeds, so these will come in handy. Check out the video above to see how I created them.

Mini Cabinet Greenhouse

I am obsessed with cute greenhouses and she sheds. I have a whole Pinterest board for sheds. I would adore one, however, my budget doesn’t stretch for one right now. I decided to recycle an old cabinet instead, and I made my very own mini greenhouse. I got this cabinet second hand a few years ago. It was hiding under my bed. Whilst scrolling through Pinterest, I got an idea and remembered the cabinet I had. I gave this a good scrub using some degreaser. I rinsed off any remaining product, and I cleaned down the glass panels using some vinegar and water solution.
