Easy Garden Crafts

I love tooling around outside, especially in the summer. I find calm in pulling weeds and spreading bark mulch. Does anyone else feel that way? Of course it’s better when it’s not blazing outside (I like warm, but not hot), but this is one activity I can even enjoy in the heat.

Protecting Your Outdoor Crafts

Given that warm weather is around the corner and the Mod Podge Outdoor is ready to roll, I’m sharing over 40 garden crafts with you. Not all of these garden craft ideas use Mod Podge Outdoor, but they could (and should if they are going to be sitting outside).

Mod Podge Outdoor

I have an entire blog post devoted to the Mod Podge Outdoor formula, but I’ll give you a bit of information here. Mod Podge Outdoor is a special formula that is way more weather resistant than the standard Mod Podge formulas.

As a result of being tougher, the formula is thicker, which is normal. But it makes it just a little bit different to use. Also Mod Podge Outdoor is highly water resistant, but not completely waterproof.

While, it’s not UV resistant, it’s durable. You can still make lovely (and durable) DIY garden decor with this formula, but you may need to purchase an additional sealer.

Mod Podge Ultra

Mod Podge Ultra can be use on both indoor and outdoor project surfaces as it is water-resistant and offers UV protection. It is also formulated to dry non-tacky and will not leave a sticky finish. 

If you want to complete some projects for your outdoor space and seal them, the Ultra is a great option! It is more expensive than MP Outdoor – just so you’re aware.

I have enjoyed the ideas! The first one I am going to do, using a teapot, is the watering can with crystals. My girlfriend gave me an old teapot.
