DIY Garden Art

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

    You can use silicone instead of glue it works great for sticking outdoor things together

    Great idea! Simple and colorful. Something to do when it is 90 degrees out, and you have no desire to weed garden beds in that kind of heat!!

    I have terrible issues with E6000, I have several kinds of sealant in my drawer, and just went to buy more Silicone clear...my things have been out in the weather for several years now. E6000...too runny for me! But many have good success with it.

    Love this idea. I just did a mosaic with the same glass beads. However if there are any left over I may just have to make something for the garden.

    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.
  • Alice Harley-Wosnig Mableton, GA
    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.
