Now you tell me: Green gardening stimulates the presence of all kind of animals in your garden. Is that an advantage or disadvantage?
Well these recycled creepy crawlies will be welcome in your garden.
You need a pair of scissors, a sewing machine, and an 8 cm long piece of innertube.
For tips on sewing see my instructable of the tube-crow

Attach the upper part of the body to the lower part. Notice that the upper part is wider and should be made bulging before stiching the second side.
Scatter them around the garden fence. Hide a push pin inside the body to make them stick to the fence.

Your innertube creatures are very strange, but very, very appealing.  They would go perfectly in my garden.   Time to dig out those old innertubes, methinks.
