Heather the founder of Dollar Store Crafts and I go on the most fun trips to the Dollar Store. By the time we leave I have a cart full of items and a mind full of ideas. One of the hot items in my cart this week was a package of metal barbecue skewers. I was excited to come home and start crafting with them. They are perfect for turning into garden markers!
- Paper, on hand
- Barbeque skewers, $1.00 for 4
- Twine, on hand or $1
- E6000 glue, on hand
- Masking tape, on hand
Total: $1.00 and up
Place two skewers flush together. Put a small amount of E6000 where you intend to start your twine. Start wrapping the twine around the skewers. Wrap one time over the start of the twine to cover the end. Place a small amount of E6000 down the area you intend to wrap around. Continue to wrap the twine down the skewers until you reach the point where you want to stop. I didn’t wrap all the way to the bottom because I knew the very bottom would be in the soil and I didn’t want to waste any materials.
Once you get to the end place a small amount of E6000 and cut your twine. Place masking tape around the end to hold it until it dries.
Once the glue has dried insert your paper between the two rings are the top and place in your garden or container.
