Homemade "Garden Whimsies" ~ March 12, 2016

If you haven't heard of Garden Whimsies by Mary on Facebook, you may just want to stop on over to her page! She makes the most adorable whimsical things for her outdoor gardens. :)

Her beautiful creations gave me the inspiration to try my hand at some for my own outdoor decorations.

So, I took a trip to our local thrift shop, and had a fun time finding various pieces I thought would go well together. I happen to love anything with a vintage rose style or pattern. Here's what I ended up with ~

Then I decided what pieces I would match together. Once that was determined, I put contact cement on the bottom of each piece, and let them set for about 15 minutes.

(The oval pink bowl would be done after the first pieces were put together as it's an additional decoration added to the top of another.)

Once the contact cement was glossy, I paired the pieces together that I wanted for each decoration. They firmed up nicely. Then I did the same process for the oval pink bowl's bottom, and the piece it would set on. Once they were paired together and hardened, this is what MY "Garden Whimsies" looked like ~

This is a fun, inexpensive project that you can really get creative with and show off your own unique, individual style. Go on, try it for yourself! I think you'll be surprised at just how easy it is. 

I think I see a few more "Garden Whimsies" on my horizon! ;)
