Rustic Garden Art DIY

Making funky and fun garden art is a knack.  I'm always finding things that can be taken to the next level, or designing something from scratch.

These don't need any special winter care, except to keep them dry if possible.  There is nowhere for water to collect, which could freeze and crack, but they could break if they are immersed in water.
