What's your number?

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?

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