DIY House Garden Arbor

Hi it’s Amy from Hertoolbelt back with another build project.  It’s time to get out in the yard and work in the garden.  Today’s project is for a DIY House Garden Arbor, wouldn’t this be so cute in the garden.  We found the inspiration for this project on the blog Homemade Ginger, isn’t it so fun!

The pin associated with this photo suggests using pallets to recreate the house.  I personally don’t think the original photo uses pallets, but it is an option.

  1. Hi: I love this! I’d like to add a gate to it, and put it in place of my nasty, chain-link gate. Do you think it can still be free-standing or should I at least attache one side to the house?

    Thanks!
