Craft loving families often have the issue of what to do with the craft once it is complete. Due to space restrictions, it just isn’t possible to save every craft project.

These 7 family-friendly crafts to display outside are lots of fun to make, perfect for the whole family to work on together and will look awesome in your garden or outdoor space!
