There I was in my studio getting ready to head on out to the wild outdoors (aka. my backyard–which actually does in fact house a few of the neighborhood bears, copperheads plus a few other random predators) to pick out some beautiful spring flowers for a spring wreath when it struck me.

The idea, that is. Not the copperhead hiding in the tree line.

Remind me to tell you about my neighbor that’s been bitten by a few in the last two years we’ve lived here. Yea… you could say I’m a little paranoid.

DIY Rustic Birdbath: You Only Need 3 Affordable Materials!

This is when I realized that I did not want to use my wreath as a wreath.

You see, recently I’ve been on this crazy kick to turn the porch of my studio into this elvish-flower-garden-oasis of sorts. Do you remember the other day (when I showed you my DIY Flower Planter Dresser), and I mentioned how I might have sort of gone a little crazy with buying and planting a lot of plants and seeds?!

It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?

And no… I am not obsessed with elves or anything of the like, but I am a The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit fan. Like… I have a schoolgirl crush on Legolas. Still.

Sigh. Ok, ok. Maybe a little obsessed. There. I said it. Happy?!

In fact, when Mike and I were in the designing phase of building my studio I wanted a winding staircase like you see in the elvish kingdom.

But OF COURSE, Mr. Party Pooper Pants (aka. Super Talented Hubby) said no.

Can you believe it?!

I’m not even sure what he said, but it was something along the lines of it being too complicated and would cost nearly as much as the building.

I know, I know.

He just doesn’t get it! HAH! 🙂

Since I can’t have my winding staircase made out of vines, flowers, and carved tree trunks I just figured I’d bring the plants and animals to me.

So far, I’ve attracted bees, wasps, flies, a centipede, and occasionally a few butterflies if I’m reallyyyyy lucky! Now, hopefully, I can convince the birds to take a sip during this upcoming hot time of the year.

Who knows.

This super easy DIY rustic birdbath might even turn into a bird feeder in a few weeks. You just never know with me.

I love me some change!

  1. Great twist on a wreath, Liz and a perfect place to put it as well. I love that you refer to your backyard as the wilderness. Here’s to hoping you don’t encounter that copperhead like your neighbor did! Thanks for joining us this week on #shinebloghop 🙂

    1. Yay!! So happy to help! Plus, you can always turn it into a bird feeder at a later point if you’d like. Love it! 🙂

  4. Cute idea! I think I could even repurpose an old ugly wreath in my garage and combine it with one of the trays that go under a pot that broke! Thanks for sharing with us on Throwback Thursday!
