DIY Garden Art

12.11.14
I wanted to add some new elements to my back garden this year.I wanted something that sparkled and stood out among the plants as they start to grow and bloom.And, because you know me, and my lack of patience, it had to be easy. I grabbed an empty jar, some flat sided marbles and some good glue and went to work. #thinkspring #springfever

    I have done this with my wine bottles for my bottle tree. I have a few more bottles to do before I order the tree. thread LED icicle lights in them and I'll be ready to show it off.

    Yes I will. Each string of the lights will be in a wine bottle. Have to get a heavy duty extention cord I can bury to light them with and put them on a timer for dusk to dawn. LED will be a lot cheaper and they last almost forever.

    This is brilliant; solar lights seem to die out in the rain and sun and this will probably lengthen their life .....

    Do you glue marbles on the bottom of the jar which later is the top? If so, does enough sunlight get in to charge the battery?

      Glenda T Yes, glue marbles to what becomes the top. I put the solar light on some styrofoam so the battery is at the top. Sunlight DOES get through to charge the battery.

    Does this glue dry clear? And hold over time?

      Pam Yes the glue I use dries clear. I get tubes of silicon all weather glue at Walmart. You will use a good amount of it, but has lasting through all the seasons outside. My solar lights don't

      We are all big Packer fans around here, and I bought green and gold marbles and painted Packer G's on some of the green ones. Everyone I've given them to love them...just a little something that doesn't cost much and makes people smile when you give them
