Find handmade and vintage garden decor, accents and more on Etsy.

If you're looking for something unique or completely original, you can probably find it on Etsy. While best known for handmade crafts for inside the home, Etsy has a huge selection of garden accessories, ranging from everything from outdoor decor to heirloom seeds. And buying from Etsy supports independent crafters and artists. What's more down to earth than that?

If you're looking for something unique or completely original, you can probably find it on Etsy. While best known for handmade crafts for inside the home, Etsy has a huge selection of garden accessories, ranging from everything from outdoor decor to heirloom seeds. And buying from Etsy supports independent crafters and artists. What's more down to earth than that?

Here's a snapshot of some of the awesome garden finds you can get through Etsy:

  • Tools: I know, you're wondering if someone out there is making garden tools to sell on Etsy. Some are, but the garden tools most intriguing to me are the vintage finds. While many of them may be functional, they make excellent garden accents. What's a better symbol of garden toil and effort than a rusty pitchfork? Antique farm tools are another neat way to create your garden atmosphere. You'll find tools that we don't really use anymore, like iron lawn sprinklers or animal-drawn carts and plows. There are also neat old watering cans and buckets that could make cool accent planters!




  • Seeds: There are tons of rare seeds available on Etsy for very affordable prices. I saw everything from watermelon radish seeds to lemon cucumber seeds to black krim tomatoes. Beyond that, there were dozens of pages of flowers and herbs. A truly all-inclusive collection brought to you by seed savers all over the country!

  • Art: Garden art is a super way to dress up your garden. Etsy has wall hangings, photos and decorated planters, but the selection of custom signs is incredibly impressive. There are plenty of choices for handmade row markers too, including the one pictured below:




  • Fun Stuff: Seed bombs have to be one of the coolest garden things I found. Perfect for gifts, these round hollow "bombs" are full of seeds, so you can toss them and they "explode" on impact, sending seeds everywhere. It could be a fun way to plant a wildflower garden or plan an eco-assault on an ugly vacant lot!




As you get ready to plant your garden this year, go ahead and browse through the curiosities Etsy has to offer. You may just find something you didn't even know you were looking for!
