A Simple Dragonfly Rock Art Project For The Garden

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

I made a large dragonfly rock art accent feature for my pollinator garden using graduating-sized round stones for the body and a piece of flagstone cut for the wings.

This rock art really adds some pop and visual interest to my landscape and honors my mother, a Texas Master Naturalist. (The dragonfly is the Texas chapter logo)

I made a fall tablescape using natural materials typically found on the ground or in trees & bushes this time of year. The eco-warrior in me loves that this is all natural yet so beautiful.

No reason to buy something plastic or disposable to celebrate such a beautiful season. It was super easy to do, eco friendly, cost nothing and looks great. Come see what I did.
