When the gardens are dying down and winter is approaching for many of us we find ourselves doing those odd garden chores like sorting through garden tools.
I tend to collect old garden tools. You never know when you might need a new handle for you favorite tool or a tool might break. But, many of us have too many tools.
If you find yourself in this position you may get inspiration from these useful purposes for old tools: Garden Art!
A combination of old unused garden tools and old tools creates a whimsical bird. Most of these items you probably have in the potting shed or garage.
I have set aside a stash of tools that could be turned into animals, birds, wreaths or trellises.
During the cold winter months this will be one of my projects, creating garden art. I will also spend a few weeks canvasing the local scenery looking for inspirational garden art created by local gardeners. I plan to use these ideas to create my own tool garden art.
