Top 10 Amazing Things to do With Tree Stumps
Recently I have decided to cut down an old tree in the back garden due to it being dangerous to my little one who plays in the garden. But now the main bulk of work has been done cutting it down, the tree stump still remains. But should I get rid of it? Or should I use it to make one of these amazing ideas…
Top 10 Best Volkswagen Beetles in Gardens
The first ever film I went to see in the Cinema was “Herbie Goes Bananas” way back in 1980 (yes, I really am that old and I was 5 when I watched that!) Anyway my point is that I understand some people’s fondness over their VW Beetles. Some people still drive them, some still race them and there are even people who see them as a perfect garden ornament. I intend to find out whether placing a Volkswagen beetle in the garden is madness or something that is in fact rather beautiful, as I bring you…
Top 10 Best Ways to Recycle a Wheelbarrow
For some reason, I think you will all relate to my little story here today: You see just yesterday my neighbour (who was moving out of his home) knocked on my door and asked me if I wanted my Wheelbarrow back. Now, this might not seem that unusual, but he had “borrowed” it for so long I had forgotten he had it and got myself a new one! And for some reason, I think most people will have had the same sort of thing happen to them. I would love to hear about those from everyone, but before that, I think I need to find a use for this now spare wheelbarrow I have, but what can I do with a spare …
Top 10 Things To Make With Car Tyres
Each and every year tens of millions of rubber tyres are disposed of in the UK. Many are burned in what is called a slow smoulder burn and even more than that are sent to landfill. But I say this needs to stop! Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a Eco-warrior protest, it is just me saying we don’t need to dispose of them in those old-fashioned ways that are still causing an impact on the environment, not when you could use them to make one of these amazing things…
Top 10 Amazing Sculptures Made of Drinks Cans
I am not the kind of guy that people would instantly associate with the being an “Art Lover”, sure I do appreciate a good painting like the Mona Lisa but when it comes to modern art I just have not got a clue. But when a fellow nerdette makes art then I naturally enjoy it because that artist has been inspired by the same things that I like! But there aren’t many modern artists that have done enough to warrant a whole top 10 inspired solely by their work. But Japanese artist “Makaon” has done just that and it does bring me great pleasure to bring you just a small selection of her work…
Top 10 Best Images of Shoe Planters
This might just be me, but as a kid I hated just one single thing more than the dentist, and that was shopping for school shoes! Boring shops, full of boring shoes, with boring people fitting them, and boring conversions about why that shoe I was trying on isn’t “quite right for him” boring, boring, boring. And to be honest, I still hate shoe shopping! But I do have to wonder what ever happened to my old school shoes. The truth is they had become worn out and had to be thrown away, but maybe, just maybe someone picked them up from the top of the dustbin and did something very special with them indeed…
Top 10 Things To Make With CDs
Yesterday I posted Best “Top 10 Best Ways To Repurpose Vinyl Records” but it seems I may have been a little bit harsh. You see a lot of people have told me about all the cool artwork that featured on LP covers and how much they love vinyl. And after all, just because I don’t like old vinyl records doesn’t mean they are not cool! And so I have decided to add some balance to the blogging world by bringing you…
Top 10 Things To Make With Vinyl Records
LP’s, EP,s 45′s these are things that today’s teenagers will never understand or know about. But I am sadly old enough to know what they are, but unlike a lot of people I really don’t miss vinyl records! I like CD’s, I like being able to download my music and carry literally thousands of tracks on my Nexus 7, I even like today’s music! However, what are people supposed to do with all those old Val Doonican LP’s they no longer use? Well, maybe this lot will inspire them…
Top 10 Things to do With Toilet Paper Rolls
Images of things that have been recycled into something cooler than what it originally was is one of my favourite things to look at. Most people call it “Upcycling” But I call it pure genius. From old ladders, cars, books and even pallets, they have all been given the upcycling treatment. But what about normally pointless empty toilet paper rolls?!? Surely there is something we can turn them into!? Well, it seems that there are hundreds of amazing ideas that people have come up with to use them up. Well, I have not got the time to bring you hundreds of them and you have most probably not got the time to read them. So why don’t we just take a look at what I think is…
Top 10 Best Ways to Paint Pebbles
Each and every day I walk my dog, Alfie. But last weekend just gone (for a bit of a treat) I decided to take him for a walk along the beach. He played fetch, went into the water (despite the biting cold) and generally had loads of fun. But he also found something! When he couldn’t find his ball (because he was stood on it) he picked up a pebble and dropped by my feet. But it wasn’t the stupidity of the “standing on the ball so he can’t find it” that surprised me because he always does it! It was the fact that the pebble was heart shaped! I thought it was amazing and decided to take it home …
Top 10 DIY Pallet Tables
This blog post all started last summer when my neighbour came round to my house to ask if he could have an old wooden pallet I had in the back garden (used to deliver some concrete the year before) of course I said “yes, please do take it!” For me it was just a piece of rotting wood in the back garden, but to him it seems it was a coffee table that he made using the pallet! And while I don’t have any pictures of my neighbours I have decided to bring you…
