Those statue-holders have baffled me from day one. I can just picture a statue of Mary or something...but stone statues aren't really my thing (nor are lots of bulbs...I'm a minimalist that way. Give me some grass so I don't have to weed!)
So while in Hobby Lobby with Gracelyn on our school shopping trip (it's not my fault the girl shares my love for Hobby Lobby...), we came up with an idea and bought these for $1.50 each (yay 50% off!):
With a can of Rustoleum, they became this:
Spray paint is super fun, by the way. I have a garage-sale-find desk lamp that's up next.
And then, using Scotch brand fasteners (that were awful...the back wouldn't peel off, they made my fingers hurt, and I finally had to use a jar-opener pad just to finish peeling...) I hung them to the statue boxes.
Notice that we also added grass? And relocated some bushes?
So, I guess that's how it goes with DIY...you win some, you dislike some...and that's why DIY is never done.
