Wheelbarrows are great for helping us to get things done in our gardens.
But they can also make for some pretty great decor.
Take a wheelbarrow that has seen better days and turn it into an adorable focal point for your home or garden. There are plenty of ways to repurpose that old wheelbarrow into a beautiful work of art.
Here Are 15 Spectacular Ways To Repurpose A Wheelbarrow For Your Home Or Garden:
1) Wheelbarrow Party Favor Holder
Having a garden themed party? Fill a wheelbarrow with some dirt and flowers and leave space in the middle for your favors. Glue packets of seeds to popsicle sticks and place in the dirt. Make a sign inviting people to take a packet of seeds home from your wedding or party.
2) Wheelbarrow Creature
You can turn your old wheelbarrows into funky little creatures. It takes some tools and some serious imagination but it can be done. I’d imagine there would be a lot of soldering and drilling involved.
3) Address Sign
Want an address sign that’s bold and grabs some attention? Repaint an old wheelbarrow and paint your house number on it. People will definitely be able to spot your house number this way.
4) Garden Fountain
Use wheelbarrows to create a gorgeous water feature in your yard. This one uses two wheelbarrows that are stacked. Get the tutorial here.
5) DIY Portable Grill
Need a portable grill? Make one with a wheelbarrow. Just toss some coals or wood in the wheelbarrow and place a grill on top.
6) Christmas Tree Stand

7) Outdoor Chair
Why buy an outdoor chair when you can make one? Create yourself a funky place to sit with an old wheelbarrow. Get the directions for this project here.
8) Coffee Table
You can create an amazingly unique coffee table with your old wheelbarrow’s base. Just remove the bucket part, level with a piece of wood, and add your table top. Get the tutorial here.
9) Wheelbarrow Cooler
Don’t buy an expensive cooler that you’ll just have to clean out. If your wheelbarrow is in pretty good shape (without any paint chips or rust), you can use it as a cooler. Just fill it with ice and toss your drinks in.
10) Fairy Garden
A wheelbarrow is a perfect place for a fairy garden. Just fill with some rocks, dirt, or moss, and add figurines to create a whimsical scene. Get some wheelbarrow fairy garden ideas here.
Your old wheelbarrow can provide hours of entertainment for the kids. Just fill it with sand and toss in a few sand toys. Just make sure there isn’t any flaking rust or paint.
Let your wheelbarrow serve as a beautiful focal point in your yard. Paint your wheelbarrow a pop of color, add some soil and plant flower in it. Use it as a beautiful planter. Find wheelbarrow planter ideas here.
