Garden art on the cheap DIY: Glass marbles in your fence
Colorful marbles make a plain old fence sparkle. I had the pleasure of speaking at the Lake Owasso Garden Club this week. It was a full classroom of avid, fun-loving gardeners and the topic at hand was Art in the Garden. As I told the group, I think art and the garden go together like peas and carrots and as I prepped my talk, I was reminded of one of my favorite DIY project from my own garden, the Garden Drama test garden. Festooning a six foot privacy with marbles is addictive fun that really adds a pop and punch to the garden setting, especially when the sun hits it from the back. The process is pretty simple. I would recommend using new marbles. Then go to town. I lose a marble or two over the winter from the wood contracting and expanding and maybe a couple over the summer, but a little vigilance, popping them back in is all that’s needed. Beware though, once you get going on this one, you will want to be be-dazzling your entire fence. Like this: Like Loading...
