Wow, the garden art is coming out of the woodwork! Today’s home-made ornaments are from Trina Koushmaro in Woodland, California. Trina says, “I found these plastic buoys washed up on the beach in central California. I thought it would be fun to reuse them in some creative way. So I decided to make them into frogs for my garden pond.

“I painted them with outdoor acrylic paint, and made a red line for the wide mouth. I found marbles for the eyes that actually fit tightly in the loops on the top. But just to be safe, I used my glue gun to secure them. After completion, the frogs came to life! I can’t help smiling when I  see them in the garden.” So cute, Trina!
