  1. First Aid for Gardeners

    Hide

    The garden is just a slightly tamed wilderness with hazards all its own: It harbors insects that bite, thorns that scratch, and other potential nuisances that may require simple first aid. This basic kit includes alcohol for cleaning wounds, first-aid ointment, cotton balls, bandages, tweezers for thorns and splinters, insect repellent with sunscreen, and, finally, hand salve to soothe and soften your dry skin at the end of the day.

  2. Botanical Door Border

    Hide

    Dusty miller, known for its velvety foliage, is small enough to be pressed in a telephone book. When dried, the leaf fronts turn silvery white, while the backs go gray. Both are on view in figure-eight garlands, which flank a doorway in the style of architectural moldings. 

    The leaves are affixed to plum-colored rice paper and laid under glass in inexpensive clip frames.

  5. Garden-Variety Gift

    Hide

    A flowerpot filled with garden supplies, such as a spade, shears, seeds, and gloves, makes a good gift for any friend with a green thumb. As a bonus, attach a gift tag made from decorative paper embedded with wildflower seeds; the recipient can plant it after reading your note. On the tag's front, draw a hint of what's to come.

  6. Garden-Shed Crate Cabinets

    Hide

    Create custom cabinetry in your garden shed with vintage wine crates from flea markets or online auctions. Stack them horizontally and vertically, using some as bases to vary heights. Once you've established a layout, connect crates with wood screws and collars near the corners. Use cup hooks to hang smaller items, such as trowels, funnels, and scissors. If your need for storage grows, you can easily reconfigure the system.
