Snails I Would Welcome Into My Garden...

1 Day
Medium

These google eyed creations were a complete accident! We were organizing our tires that we use for various creations when I rolled up some of the tread we had cut off. I looked at my husband and said "what does this look like?". He responded immediately with "A snail!" And these little cuties were born...

I try to do some crazy colors because the brighter they are the cuter they are.

Some have spots or swirled colors on their shells.

The eyes are made from various plastic lids. Did you know that most recycling centers to not recycle the lids. They THROW THEM AWAY!!! Most lids are made from a thicker plastic compound that some recycling centers are not equipped to break down. So I decided to do something with them instead of letting them throw them away! Check with your center for specifics on what they can take and what they can't. Happy recycling!
