Welcome to my creative space!
I saw this garden spade at my local craft store recently and knew it would be perfect to alter with fabulous Little Birdie Crafts mixed media products and their amazing flowers. It's a whimsical spring home decor piece that would make a lovely gift for a special gardener in your life. Of course I just adore how it turned out so it will be hanging out at my home to brighten up my studio. You can find a full photo tutorial on how to create this darling garden spade on the Little Birdie Crafts blog HERE.
I hope you'll pop over there and leave some love.
