I'm a Dollar Tree superfan – a quick DIY job with two cheap products will brighten your garden this summer | The Sun

A DOLLAR Tree fan has revealed that using two cheap products will help brighten your garden this summer.

Crafting enthusiast Liz Fenwick created planters using just pots and rope.

She said it only cost her $2 to make the garden accessory.

In a clip uploaded to her Facebook page, Fenwick cut holes into a pot before threading pieces of Dollar Tree nautical rope through the gaps.

She recommended sticking a piece of tape on the end of the rope if you are struggling to thread it through the hole.

She then stuck a third piece of rope and connected it to the point where the other two strands were meeting.

She wrapped tape around the three pieces of rope so they would remain stuck together.

Fenwick removed any excess rope before placing a plant inside her creation.

She proudly showed off the planter that she created as she hung it in the garden.

Fans warned Fenwick to bring the planter inside when it rains so the rope isn’t affected.

Facebook users have gushed over her creativity online.

One said: “Great ideas as usual", while another chimed: “Perfect ideas.”

Fenwick also explained how she made decorative pillows – perfect for garden furniture.

She recommended first buying a towel with a fun print from the store.

Fenwick chose a towel with a bright flamingo print.

She folded the towel on the pattern sides so they were touching on the inside.


She then glued two of the three sides together along the pattern side using a hot glue gun.

Fenwick warned that you must allow the glue to dry before turning the pillow inside out.

She then opted to use poly-fil that she had purchased from a thrift store to fill the pillow.

She sealed the pillow by taking the open ends, tucking them under, and gluing along the edges. They were pressed together until they dried.

She explained that it only cost $4 to make two pillows.

Meanwhile, a creative gardener turned a waste paper bin into a tool designed to stop garden pests from eating their plants.

The cost-effective strategy has been likened to kryptonite by social media users online.

The Redditor said: “After spending enough money on prepping these raised beds and feeling too lazy to install netting, decided to go this route with wastebin ‘cloches’.
