Garden Hacks To Complement Your Vegetable Gardening Tips And Tricks!

Garden hacks to complement your vegetable gardening tips and tricks!

I love diy gardening ideas, and coincidentally gardening is a favorite pastime of mine, and I look forward to it with much enthusiasm! However, I used to be a bit grumpy lugging around the toolbox until I figured out a way to create an apron that would hold my necessities and that would make my life easier and help me plant my garden in bliss (diy raised garden bed). So I found a pair of old jeans that I felt comfortable cutting up for this garden apron or tool belt project (garden hacks). These types of money saving hacks usually call for some spending, but I have good news – not one dime will be spent creating your denim tool belt at all (easy money hacks)!

So we have our old pair of jeans to sacrifice to the garden gods in the name of making life more comfortable. Find a flat surface and get your sharp scissors ready to cut off the legs of the jeans. When you have completed this task, we move on to the waistband, starting from the zipper start cutting along the waistline up to the seam on each end of the jeans. Then pivot the scissors and cut down the seam on each side, what you should have now would be a belt and the front part of the jeans gone! Now, this is where you can get as creative as you want and decorate your new waist apron with maybe some frill edging or puff paints. Even adding more pockets would increase the effectiveness of this garden apron.

The final stage of this garden apron process is to put the apron thing to good use now! Pack your pockets with seeds, pruning shears, gloves, your iPod, and hell anything else that can fit. Interchange as needed when you take your water breaks because keeping that garden beautiful with your care is a commendable and thankful job! Happy spring (finally) from my family to yours!

So cut along the line of the waistband and continue until you get to the end of the seam. Be careful to stop precisely there or else your apron will be ruined, and you will have to do some mending!

I figured I should post a clearer picture depicting what you would need to do in terms of cutting out the excess cloth and not ruining the diy project.

Yes, just like that! Cut down the seam now, so what we are doing is separating the front of the pants from the waistband!

See how easy that was? We cut off the front part of the denim and kept the waistband that will function as the belt and will be buttoned the same way it was intended.

Don’t spend too much time worrying about how the band will stay in place if it doesn’t fit you can use some safety pins to adjust the belt to your size if you used someone else’s jeans to make the apron.

I love Sara’s apron; it’s so much more versatile than mine was, and I peep the edging she used to keep the cloth from fraying!

So Madge used frilly red piping on her garden apron, and I can’t be mad at her fashion sense. It looks great with the bright addition.

Jane nailed her apron to the fence, and it’s not what I would choose but to each their own. If fixing the apron to the fence is what you need to get your gardening done, well power to you and I salute!
