What's your number?

Crafty Gardener(ON 5b)July 23, 2010

Here is a quick and easy little craft to make for the garden. You just need a good sized rock, some flat sided gems/marbles and some strong glue. Form and glue your house number onto the rock and set in your garden. These are flat marbles I've had left over from other projects. I originally was thinking of adding a clear colour in between all the blue ones but for now have decided to leave it as it. What do you think?

Love it...........I wouldn't add a thing and I especially like the way you made the numbers different sizes. Such a clever craft!

Very cleverly done. I'm adding this to my "to do" list because I love anything done with glass globs.

...and when they say "Geez, Louise! What did you get me, a ROCK?!" you just laugh.

I would maybe add a flower made of the same 1/2 nuggets, with a round 1/2 marble in the middle.....
