I found some copper wire as I was cleaning out my garage to prepare for my move and got sidetracked in making some little garden decorations! (Because crafting is WAY better than packing!) These would make great Father’s Day Gifts for those fathers that like gardening!
You can get various diameters of copper wire by the foot at Lowe’s or Home Depot. Find a diameter that is easy enough to bend, but not flimsy. Bend them into shapes and leave about 12″ of straight wire at the bottom so you have something to stick into the ground.
I find that it’s easier to make the shape and then cut, instead of cutting a straight piece of wire and then bending it into the shape you want. If you’re having trouble with shapes, try sketching a shape on a piece of paper and bending the wire into that shape.
