What a really cute idea for your garden. Buy an old metal coffee pot or watering can at a flea market or thrift store. Purchase a set of rods in a camping department. Put your cooking rods in the ground where you would lik them. Make sure top rod sits fine. Pull this out and use the holes to make a ring from old bricks (or new ones if you like). Fill with good garden dirt. Plant mums that are orange, burgundy and red mixed in with some wood to create the fire. Put your cooking rods back in and fill your pot with dirt after you have drilled drain holes in the bottom. plant flowers and hang on the spit rods.
How cute are these little guys – they would not be a worry to find them in your garden. Select rocks with a nice shape similar to the ones that are in the picture. Acrylic paints were used – you could even use paint that glows in the dark. They are sealed with three coats polyurethane to allow them to be used for many years.
Isn’t this a beautiful bold statement for a homes entry or door. The photo shows a purchased set designed to be hooked together. You could do this with ribbon attached to the wall and frames hung over ribbon to go down your wall just as easy – and cheaper. The design over the door is a wrought iron piece – this could be old spray painted black or left rustic – or find one brand new at places like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
