Those old clay pots in your garden can be so much more. Sure, they're great planters — but they can easily be transformed into stunning accent pieces like outdoor tables, lanterns, bird feeders and even water fountains.
What's great about working with clay pots is that you probably have a few lying around that you can spare for a project. And if not, they're cheap to buy and easy to find. These are fun weekend projects to revamp your garden, add some design to your patio or brighten up your backyard with a little whimsy.
