Library Journal Review

If your crafty needs run along the garden path, this resource offers an assortment of projects. First-time author Rose has an easy confidence with her topic. The designs are inspired by nature and gardening, and arranged by season. Many of these crafts are quite familiar-planting containers, markers, outside lighting, etc. Each of the 40 offerings is well organized, and beautiful illustrations add to the tome's attraction. Standout projects include a mason jar solar lantern from a cannibalized stake solar light, a bug hotel for beneficial garden insects, and an autumn harvest wreath incorporating sage and garlic. -VERDICT For DIYers seeking simple but creative projects, this book will appeal. While inspirational photos are abundant, some of the instructional images are a bit small. However, the instructions are sufficient, and Rose's Master Gardner status gives her writing authority. Recommended for those looking for a breadth of projects. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
