Resin crafts are popping up everywhere so I figured why not create something fabulous with resin just in time for Halloween! There’s no question that resin can be a little bit tricky to work with BUT… it doesn’t have to be if you know a few tips and tricks. When I lived in New York City, there was a scientific curiosity shop around the corner and I was always so intrigued by the colorful and sometimes gruesome simplicity of the insects and creatures preserved in resin.
I was nervous about building this mostly because there were so many steps where I could go wrong! BUT… it turns out, this is actually quite basic and came together really easily! It’s not perfect and there are still places where measurements aren’t symmetrical, but it’s only a firewood shed, so this is the perfect way to practice building techniques.
Our new house has about an acre of woods and, from the very beginning, the kids have loved going back there to explore! My husband has been creating a series of trails so they can ride their bikes and he installed a zipline right after Christmas, but I wanted to add some more fun activities back there!
I love a garden fountain but am always a little hesitant to pull the trigger on buying one because they can be an investment. Which is why I love this concrete fountain hack! I was experimenting with materials and am thrilled that everything I experimented for this project *totally* worked since the basic steps couldn’t be easier!
