Natural stone can be dyed and varnished as you like, and with it you could make whole compositions and even unusual garden sculptures yourself – the result would make your garden look better.

Make unusual garden decoration yourself – ideas with kitchen utensils
Perhaps there is hardly anything that would look fancier in the garden than kitchen utensils. With old kitchen utensils but can easily make fascinating decorations themselves, and here we give you some interesting suggestions. Do you have an old vegetable strainer in the kitchen that you no longer need? You can color it as you please and turn it into a hanging flower pot! For this purpose you should lay out and plant the sieve only with Teichvlies. The flowerpot thus made is simply ideal for the terrace, and would attractively present the flowers. And if you opt for low-growing succulents, the sieve could also serve as an impressive table decoration. And from old cheese sieves and cutlery you can make beautiful wind chimes. For example, you can easily make an owl out of the useless grater. For the eyes of the owl, you only need two lids of baby food jars, two beer mats (metal), and two large buttons. Drill holes and fix eyes with a thin wire. Finished! You could make a beak out of a piece of soft, golden metal – for example, from a soda can. At the bottom of the grater, old cutlery can be hung again using wire. See the photos above to see which outdoor decorations you can still make with kitchen utensils!
