Children love to work on garden crafts just as much as adults. Children also love to have their own gardens. Rock markers are easy to create.

Who doesn’t want more hanging decorations in their garden and patio space?

You can place it on your patio or hang them from a tree or shrub. The colors of the beads will sparkle in the sunlight and dance when the wind blows the charm. These also make lovely gifts for other garden lovers. See HERE

A highlight of a fantastic garden, aside from the plants it contains, is the wildlife that visits the garden as well.
