The best garden swag is stuff you make yourself (or someone makes for you!), so here are some cool, crafty garden projects that I’ve found on the net. Most involve recycling something to turn it into a kick-ass garden (or home) decoration, or finding new, cheap ways to garden.

Enjoy—and if you find anything neat, please let me know so I can add it to the list!
