I have heard that shiny things scare the pests away from snacking in the garden. I hope that's the truth, but either way adding these beautiful shining sticks to the yard makes a beautiful addition to the garden!

How We Did It

Jeweled Garden Sticks

Collect all things that shine for this fancy craft. We found gems and sequins galore in our art bin. We also grabbed some glitter glue, which we ended up not using in the end.

My daughter spread the paint stick (you can get paint sticks from hardware stores) with tacky glue.

Next, she added each shiny piece like a little shiny puzzle.

While the sticks were drying in the sun, we admired the sticks' shiny reflection. We almost needed sunglasses to look at them! If this doesn't scare those birds, I don't know what will!

Once dry, we headed to the garden where Emma pointed out each plant that has been getting munched on. This is how she found the perfect spot for the garden sticks.

Next to the spinach, good choice. We shall hope for the best--all while admiring our new fancy garden accessory!
