Simple and without baking - at the beginning is the idea
We have prepared 40 inspirational examples for you, which are relatively easy to implement. Many of our DIY projects include many upcycling ideas that you can use abundantly. Handmade is always best, but refining flower pots or painting stones can be exciting topics for you when designing your garden.
If you are determined to work with clay or loam, you do not necessarily need a prior experience with a potter's wheel. The use of a suitable stove, however, to finish baking the Tonwerke in it, unfortunately can not be bypassed.
Painting and glazing cups requires a bit of specialized knowledge
Decorate clay works and creatively shape the garden
In specialized shops for artists and craft supplies such as idea or Bössner you can buy ready-baked shapes and suitable color for clay painting.
Depending on what atmosphere you want to get in your garden, you can take various forms to create no fantasy worlds. Strive for the senses and play with the elements of nature, such as water or fire.
Playing with the natural elements and the senses
A small garden pond made of glazed pottery can be decorated with moss and filled with colorful glass stones. The interaction of sunlight and water with elements that additionally reflect the light gives more than satisfactory results.
Wind chimes enchant with their sound, which depends on the material
Rest and relaxation in your own garden
Lying in the hammock between trees and bushes can be quite fantastic and relaxing for everyone. But if you add to this picture the sound of wind chimes or the soothing rippling of the water, the garden picture gets even more beautiful and relaxing features.
The decorating of vessels is an art in itself, which should be learned separately
Potter ideas as a gift
To give away something handmade is very commendable, but you have to have some idea of your craft. Ceramic plates or vases can be a fitting task for beginners in the field of pottery.
You can order a deco dish in a pottery and make it yourself as a gift. Inquire in advance how exactly you will process the glaze. If in doubt, visit a pottery workshop and then approach your task with much more experience and affinity.
