Create Some Jumbo Yard Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 21

Create Some Jumbo Yard Flowers I saw something like this on HGTV and thought it would be so fun to do in my yard.  During the Fall season, the oak trees lose all of their leaves and the pine trees don’t really look very bright.  Having something in our yard with a pop of color, that will look great when snow is falling was something […]

Create a Back to School Crayon Crown 20

Create a Back to School Crayon Crown I wanted to make another gift for the wonderful teachers in our area, and let you all know how I did it.  With the budgets of some schools at a very low amount, I personally think that teachers are forced to spend too much of their own money, for things that are needed in the classroom.  I thought […]

How to Make a Recycled Tire Planter 15

How to Make a Recycled Tire Planter When it was time to get new tires for my truck, I wanted to use the old ones for something around home.  I don’t like paying the recycling fee to the shop to get rid of them, and figured that they would look pretty good in my yard.  There are so many other things that you can do with […]

Make Some Upcycled Denim Planters #DIY #Craft I have a bunch of old pants laying around, hoping to some day become something else.  I remember years ago, my Mom making my brother a blanket with squares of old jeans, but figured I don’t have the time (or the patience) to do that, so wanted to figure out something a bit easier.  I figured that it would […]
