We’re thrilled to have Jocie Hagan of The Better Half, share her succulent garden ideas with us. Her blog-within-a-blog at One Project Closer (OPC) is all about thrifty and fabulous DIY decor and crafts. And there’s definitely a crafty element to this clever miniature succulent garden project– it’s a garden inside a mason jar. Read on for the complete DIY tutorial.
Confession time: I don’t garden. Ever. In fact, when The Home Depot asked me to participate in the Do-It-Herself Workshop series by sharing my succulent garden ideas, I had to look up what a succulent was. *shame* But once I figured out what a succulent was, I was super excited to make a garden with my own special twist.
Succulents are right up my gardening alley – they require little water or attention, are bright and hearty, and are easy to plant. They are hard to kill, and for this black thumb gardener, that is all that matters!

Ethan Hagan, of the blog One Project Closer, is an expert on just about any aspect of home improvement and DIY projects. Here, he shows us how he created some simple wall-mounted shelving using cast iron pipe and fittings. Pipe shelving is a popular way to add storage space simply and relatively inexpensively, but Ethan’s pipe shelves have an extra stylish twist — they feature beautiful reclaimed wood. The repurposed wood is a perfect complement to the industrial-style pipe.
And as you’ll see, his shelving turned out to be perfect for displaying some treasured vintage items.
I recently inherited a few items from my grandfather including some old hand tools, a small radio and a 48-star American flag. Needless to say, I was excited and decided to build a space to show them off. I’ve always liked the look of black pipe shelves. Not only are they functional, the pipe and some reclaimed wood add character to an otherwise boring shelf.
Whitney Curtis is the author of the home and garden blog The Curtis Casa. She shares with us her step-by-step tutorial for making a DIY wall hanging planter.
With the hope of warm spring weather still a few weeks away, I wanted to create a modern DIY Wall Hanging Planter to brighten up my home office and add a little (more) greenery to the space. This modern look is a great addition to any empty vertical space and will hold gardening fans over until the weather warms up and we can head outside.
Note: This is an intermediate DIY project. Please be careful when handling tools and hardware. And always wear your safety goggles!
Using concrete pavers, or paving stones, is a cost-effective way to build a patio for your back yard. Pavers also have a little more visual appeal than your standard concrete patio, so a lot of homeowners decide they’ll use pavers to upgrade their old patio. And this leads them to a common question heard in the aisles of Home Depot stores across the country: “Can I lay pavers on top of an existing concrete patio?”
That’s the question posed in the virtual Home Depot aisles of our online Community Forums by canyongirl.
The answer is yes, you certainly can lay paving stones over an existing concrete patio. Home Depot associate HDwetPaint explained the basics on how to lay pavers over concrete.
Spice storage. It seems like a clutter problem for every household. There is an ever-growing, ever-rotating container of spices, always different amounts and different jars. And how on earth do you keep them organized so you can find the one spice you need without having to pull every other bottle out of the cabinet first?
Well, call me a braggart, but I think I’ve found a way!
Using some inexpensive hardware store supplies and two dozen mason jars, we’ll create chalkboard stickers that will make it easy for you to add new spices to your collection without disrupting your organization system. This will also ensure that no spray paint will contaminate the inside of your spice containers.
One of the most beloved symbols of Christmas is the Nutcracker, the magical, heroic character from Tchaikovsky’s ballet of the same name. Our online How-To Community Forums are featuring a series of fun DIY Christmas decorations, including this clever, easy-to-make terra cotta nutcracker.
Forums associate Christine Claret was the crafty mind behind this Terra Cotta Nutcracker Christmas decoration project. If you study the photo, you’ll quickly figure out that our nutcracker is made from five eight-inch terra cotta pots and a terra cotta saucer — exactly the kind of terra cotta pots you can pick up at any Home Depot garden center.
