I found these thick, concrete tiles at the Habitat Restore a few weeks back. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but the color drew me in. I purchased two of them at .40 a piece.
I was at Hobby Lobby (in the floral section) and my eye was drawn to these beads. How great is that shade of green? I bought one bag priced at $2.99, and used a 40% off coupon.
I decided to pair the blue tile and green beads to make monogrammed art for the kids for our backyard flower beds. The obvious way to go for me is a "D" and a "K". Took me about 10 minutes and project was less than $3. The colors really pop and look fresh for spring! I was not sure how they would hold up in the elements, but I am happy to say the sprinklers have been getting them every morning, and they are holding up just fine! The kids love anything that is "for them", so everyone is happy!
