When waste becomes useful for garden

Every day many things go in the trash that can be reused for other things. Bottles, boxes, bags, old shoes, pieces of cloth or laces, and many others that go unnoticed. Just a little imagination and creativity can be a help in enhancing the beauty of your place. You can easily add many things to your daily life back by making it a showpiece or using boxes again for jewellery or to keep stationary.

Going back in the days of art and craft where we used wood, pieces of tiles, match-sticks, straws, and stones to decorate. Here we are focusing on decorating gardens as they bring positivity in your life. Out of these waste materials, you can actually make a masterpiece.

Let’s Open the Bottles:

The bottle is the one most wasted thing that goes in the trash every day. Be it a 500 ml or 2 l cold drink bottle, each one can be the best piece of art. The bigger bottles can be used for growing a plant or vines by cutting the bottle vertically into two halves. If you want you can also paint and decorate it.

Another way you can use these bottles is as water sprinkler. Heat a wool pin and make 7-8 holes at the bottom of the bottle. Attach it to the end of a water pipe and sprinkle the water in your garden easily covering a maximum of area.

Plant and swing with Car tyres:

Imagine your garden full of colourful flower-pots in different sizes enhancing the beauty. But it will also take some money out of your pocket so there is a better idea.

You remember those old tyres of your car that you’ve just kept in a corner, take them out and spray paint on it.

Use different bright colours on it also if you want to make it a designer then a fabric colour and paint will work great. Keep them in a row or dug them half in-ground or put them on each other unequally and fill with soil to sow seeds of plants in it.

Light up your garden in dark:

By the end of every month we throw jam or pickle jars in dustbin but now onwards don’t throw them rather collect them for your garden.

No doubt some of you reuse it by planting a small plant in it but here the idea is little different. Collect five or six jars of same shape and size and hang them on a tree with thick wool thread or jute thread.

Place them together and put candles in it and light them up in the evening. Instead of normal candles, you can also use floating candles as they stay for more time.

Let’s open the bottles:

Next time you open a bottle don’t ignore the cap instead collect it in a box. Take all the caps and use them as a piece of decoration. Tie them all together or sew them with each other to make wind chimes and hang it on a tree. Who thought Decorating garden with waste would be fun!.

You can also colour them and make facial expressions on it or if you doubt on your drawing skills then just put a colourful dots on those coloured caps.

Make way for yourself:


Broken pieces are hard to join back together so use them to decorate the pathway in your garden. Whether broken pieces are of pots or of tiles it can be used in decorating the way going to your house through garden.

Apart from this, there are pebbles or different stones that are easily available if you dug your garden. Use that as well for highlighting the boundaries of the path.

Give it a feminine touch:


When it comes about decorating something the first thing that strikes in a girl’s mind is ribbon laces and a round piece of mirrors. Here the idea is to give your garden a feminine touch by decorating flower pots, birdhouses and others with beautiful laces and ribbons.

Take out those abandoned clothes, cut laces, ribbon or any other design from cloth to decorate and stick it with glue on the pots. If you want to paint the pot first and then paste those designs.
