Colorful decorations poking up between your plants will not only add sparkle, but they can also help to identify what you have planted, like a label. Make a note in your garden diary to say which design you've used for your gardening projects. This project takes one hour to complete.
- clean foil containers
- scissors (adult supervision required)
- black marker
- colored markers
- kebab sticks
1. Draw Your Design
Place your design onto the base of a foil container, using a black marker (Image 1).
Consider a few fun ideas for your design. You could choose bugs, flowers and birds (Image 2).
2. Cut Out Your Design
Cut around the outline of your design. Use a sharp pair of scissors with the help of an adult.
3. Color Your Design
Press a pen onto the foil shape. This will make decorative, raised holes.
Color your design with colored permanent markers. Be sure to allow enough time to let the ink dry.
