DIY: Mud Pie Kitchen

May 28, 2013

We predict the next big trend in outdoor living will be mud pie kitchens. Admit it. You want one:

Above: When we spotted this ingenious DIY project, via Ginny’s blog Small Things, it was all we could do to contain ourselves from running straight home to turn some old crates upside down to create “cabinets” and a “stove.” For step-by step instructions, visit Small Things

Above: Any unbreakables you already own–miniature muffin tins, galvanized buckets, that old dented pie dish–will perfectly complement the rustic vibe. For seating: tree stumps.

Above: Fresh flowers to “ice” the cake.

Above: Whisks and spoons to beat the batter. If you have a galvanized tub, fill it with water and use it as a sink.

Above: For urban gardeners: Buy a bag of topsoil if you don’t have any dirt of your own.
