Monday Must-Haves: Spring 2018 Clearance

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Happy Monday! Tomorrow we will be celebrating the start of May and in just a couple of weeks we will be sending out our Summer 2018 catalog – can you believe it?! But before we move on to either of those events, we’re dedicating our last Monday Must-Have post to clearance items that have one thing in common: SPRING! Check them out below and get all their details by clicking on the images, and remember, since they are clearance items we cannot guarantee they will stick around for much longer.

Anyway, here are five must-have home accents to complement spring decor or bring the season into your home all year long (they also make fun gifts).

Weekly Spotlight: Garden Stakes Under $50

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

April is Garden Month, so every Weekly Spotlight throughout the month of April will be dedicated to garden decor you can find at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. We hope you see something (or a few things!) you like and are able to make your garden as beautiful as can be. First up: Garden stakes under $50.

The heavy-duty iron Garden Stake is simple yet versatile. Its curved hook is perfect for hanging plants, lanterns, wind chimes and other garden decor throughout your yard.

This Rusted Sun Garden Stake offers primitive appeal and sunny charm in your garden or in a flower bed (there are eight more complementary styles to choose from, too!).

Our Terracotta Bird Rain Gauge can be staked into the ground or in a flower pot. Besides adding sophistication to your outdoor living spaces, this outdoor home accent will tell you how much rain has fallen outside.

Beehive Rabbit Garden Stake | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopIron Bird Flag Stake is a customer favorite, and offers a couple different functions in addition to being a stylish accent for your yard. The extend arm can hold a decorative garden flag, the leaf next to the bird can be filled with birdseed or you can let rainwater pool inside to make a little bird bath.

New in our Spring 2018 catalog, the Beehive Rabbit Garden Stake is one of the most decorative garden stakes we offer. The metal surface is treated to withstand outdoor elements and sunshine, and offers a cheerful welcome, especially when placed next to a front door or porch.

End Note: When shopping for any garden stake that will be serving double or triple duty by holding a potted plant or bird seed (like the first Garden Stake and our Iron Bird Flag Stake), we recommend looking at those with double bottom prongs to ensure stability in the ground.

DIY Summer Fairy Garden

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Fairy gardens are cropping up all over the place, and with our addition of some new web exclusives, you can easily create a fairy garden in your own planter box or backyard. Today we are also laying out some basic materials you’ll need to DIY a fairy garden, followed by some inspiration to help get you started.

  • The space or a container. Prop little fairies and their houses at the base of a tree trunk or in your already-established garden for a little more whimsy this summer. Or, choose a container to create one from scratch. You could use a terracotta planter, a bucket, a wash tub, a wagon and even an outdoor table (see below). Elevate the fairy garden for enhanced visual appeal.
  • Potting soil and plants. You can choose any plants and flowers that you adore, but in addition, we recommend incorporating moss and green leafed plants. You could even use low-maintenance succulents!
  • Wood and rocks. If you’re simply adding a few fairy friends to a garden, consider crafting a makeshift bench or a small rock pathway for added charm. If you’re going all out with a DIY fairy garden, you could construct a mini pergola out of twigs, a small fence out of painted popsicle sticks, and a little patio for the fairies. Adding a small birdbath would also be lovely, and it would provide a nice resting spot for your backyard birds.

A simple fairy garden that emphasizes flowers and plants,
but still exudes joyful storybook charm.

A little more involved, we love that this fairy garden was made in a vintage red wagon (which means you can move it anywhere on a whim!).

This adoring fairy garden was (ingeniously) constructed in a table.
It’s even more perfect because of the drop leaves – with this DIY, you can
be charmed by the fairies and still use the table for serving tea to friends.
