You can use broken plates and saucers as edging for around garden areas and trees. If you have some old china that you just really can’t bring yourself to part with, use those plates to create a beautiful border for garden areas. Plates that are cracked or chipped can be broken in half (carefully of course) and then the halves simply stuck into the ground. You can use the same colors or mix it up a bit. This helps you to take care of those plates and gives you a really inexpensive yet beautiful edging for your favorite outdoor spaces.
