Tin cans upcycled into bird scarers. I used old baked bean tins cleaned out and removed the lids and bottoms, then stuck ribbon pieces to one end from the inside, and took some free wallpaper border samples from B which I cut to size and stuck to the outside. Much easier than painting them and much nicer to look at. These will be hung in our allotment to scare the birds, and look pretty. Upcycle garden craft idea
'Jam Tarts' have been around forever but any historical reference to jam tarts appears at the same time sugar was available for jam making (honey, though sweet is no good for making jam) and as sugar in any form was costly, the humble jam tart had quite a status symbol. The tarts no longer carry such celebrity, and has been out of fashion for quite some time but is making a come back. A jam tart recipe is just so easy just a little pasty and jam or, for lemon tarts, using lemon curd.
