The Garden Creation. How to start and finish under Five dollars.
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. (Shown in photo above)
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.
