Saturday Spotlight~ Patio Paver Lady BUG’s

HERE IS A FUN SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT do it your self project~

CAN WE SAY CA-UUUTE! My brother Gareth made these for my SIL Julie for her newly planted garden. Their third child was a girl and they did her DARLING room in lady bugs. So they have an attachment to lady bugs. Julie wanted some ladybugs in her garden.

THEY STARTED WITH THESE~

AND ended up with this!

and these!

HOW TO: They used floral wire for the antenna’s. To drill the wholes in the brick they used a masonry drill bit. To make sure they stayed in firmer place they also used a dab of hot glue.

BEST PART~ you can do a bumble bee, snail, turtle… all the same way.

WAY TO GO GARE AND JULIE! (p.s. their blog is private so sorry no link!)

  4. Oh yes, I can say CA-UUUTE!! I’m just wondering if Gareth must have used a good spray sealant for these? They’re adorable, and I think they’d be lots of fun to make! ~tina
