Our Home Rocks ~ Garden project

The Garden Creation. How to start and finish under Five dollars.

Our Home Rock’s finished project.


The Gnomes that gave me the inspiration.

While walking around the yard, I stumbled upon a couple of rocks… not literally.  I put them under the back deck where they would be out-of-the-way of the mowing path.

I came across my idea while weeding in the front garden and looked upon my garden gnome.  The Gnomes may as well hit me in the head with a garden shovel.

Within a few days I had gathered everything I needed for my creation.  All that was left on my list to complete my project was the paint.  What kind of paint would stay stuck to a rock during all seasons?  I still don’t really know which paint would be best; experiment number 1 would soon begin.  I bought some permanent once dry acrylic paint from the department store for just fewer than five dollars.

I was all set to attack my project, what fun it was.  I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s and making this creation really brought back memories. The good old times when I was a teen, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Peace, love and everything that came with it.

My project cost me under five dollars and about an hour and a half of peaceful time. Hopefully my creation will remain in the garden for many years to come as one of the focal points.
