Do your house plants seem a little dull? Maybe they’re just lounging around being lazy producing absolutely no glitz or sparkle. Well that’s not their fault, they are only plants after all and sometimes it takes a little more than water and sunshine to make a girl feel pretty.
But do not fear! A Marble “plant bling” (I’m kicking myself for stooping so low as to use the word “bling”) tutorial is here!!!
And for those of you not into the whole DIY thing you can enter to win your very own 3 piece set by leaving a comment on this page (scroll down for details), and if you don’t like those odds head on over to my Etsy shop and buy some pre-made plant flair all of your own! for only $8 shipped!
This is what you’ll need!
Copper Wire (I use 16 gauge but anything small will work)
Marbles (One marble per stake)
Wire Cutters (or funky scissors you don’t care about denting)
Needle Nose Pliers (I like the round ones)
To start cut a 10″ piece of Copper Wire (One piece per stake)
With your Needle Nose Pliers make a spiral at one end of the copper wire you just cut.
Firmly hold the spiral on the top of your Marble.
While holding the spiral in place with one hand, us your other hand to slowly curl the Copper Wire around the Marble.
Curl the Copper Wire around until you reach the base of the Marble.
Bend the Copper Wire so that it protrudes strait out from the base of the Marble.
With your Needle Nose Pliers creatively bend the protruding Copper Wire to create Drama and Flare!
Voila! Beautiful Marble Plant Stakes fit for a Queen… or a very posh spider plant.
Oh how wonderful your plants will look
