I have FINALLY turned a “Pin” into a completed project! I saw a Cinder Block Garden on Pinterest via Alison of Remodelista and thought it would be the perfect solution to adorn the side of my Alice in Wonderland Garden. I purchased a variety of plants at my local Home Depot while buying the cinder blocks to ensure a perfect fit. Now I have a lovely wall filled with Anenomes, Forget-Me-Nots, Violas, Creeping Flox, English Daisies, Basket of Gold, Thrift, and Rockfoil.
Select Cinder Blocks were embellished with Martha Stewart Lace Stencils. I used Krylon Glitterblast to spray on the design. The checkered sides of the smaller blocks were stamped on using the Wonderland set from Stampendous and Martha Stewart Acrylic.
For the larger blocks I used the Krylon Glitterblast to spray paint through lace I found at the thrift…along with these darling tea pots!
Here we have the White Rabbit who as usual is running a wee bit late! He is also embossed on metal and colored with Copics.
I have amassed quite the tea-pot collection over the years and have yet to find a double spouted one. I found these two tea pots on the same day of thrifting and was delighted to find that I could stack them.
You can’t have a wonderland garden without the elusive Cheshire cat. I have hidden him among the Creeping Flox on a sparkling garden stake much like his grin.
I discovered a new technique for creating faux Dichroic Glass using craft metal and packaging plastic…this was an accidental discovery. I hope to share a tutorial on how to create this look some time next week. If you’d like you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter to stay up to date on my latest creations and tutorials (See Sidebar). Next on my list of Pinning projects to be is one of those lovely Greenhouses made from reclaimed windows and doors We shall see how I fare at the Flea markets this season.
