Handmade signs add a simple and quirky personal touch to your cottage and are often extremely inexpensive to make. You can use drift wood or old ply wood you have laying around the cottage to give your sign a rustic look. Get creative with fun paint colours and humorous writing to truly bring your cottage to life.

When it comes to garden décor the DIY project possibilities are endless. Paint some beautiful garden rocks to bring some pops of colour to your flower bed or create an eclectic handmade windchime to hang from your favourite tree. Hand-painting flower pots is also another great way to add a personal touch to your outdoor space at the cottage.

Fire pits are a wonderful way to create a space at your cottage for everyone to come together, make memories and share stories; and building one together can be a memory in and of itself. A simple firepit can be built out of large stones that you can scavenge for around your property.

Creating artwork with your little ones is an amazing way to bring some colour to your cottage. Not only do their imaginative minds create vibrant and lively paintings, their art also becomes a beautiful keep-sake to cherish as they get older.
