Introduction: Decoy Strawberry Rocks to Deter Bird Burglars
These painted strawberry rocks will fool pesky birds from stealing the real strawberries from your garden. The birds will be attracted to the realistically painted berries. Once the birds get fed up with the rocks, they'll leave your strawberries alone.
Step 1: Gather Materials
- rocks (thoroughly washed and dried)
- acrylic paints
- paint brushes
- toothpick to paint seeds
- craft varnish
Step 2: Paint
First, paint your rocks red. Then paint small seeds on the rocks with the toothpick. Next, paint the green stuff at the top of your strawberries. To finish, apply 2 coats of craft varnish to protect the paint and to add some shine.
Step 3: Place Rocks in Garden
Place your painted strawberry rocks in the garden and fool those birds!
