DIY Pet Reindeer...

Remember when pet rocks were the rage?

Reindeer Crafts
These pet reindeer are a little larger in size than previous pet rocks,
 but the kids will love to make them.
It's a super fun and easy Christmas paint craft project.

All you do is:
Select an oval or round flat type rock.

Paint one side or both with white paint.
(I used an artist type acrylic paint)
Leave to dry.
Or dry quicker using a hairdryer.
Using a thin brush, paint on eyes in black.
A red nose.
And baubles in coloured paint hung on the antlers.

Painted Rocks
I did this project with two five-year-olds.
So once the white paint was dry, I used a soft lead pencil to draw the eyes, nose, antlers and baubles on to the rock.
They then simply painted it.

Pet reindeer...
to place on the coffee table Christmas display, 
use as a paperweight, to give to someone special as a handmade gift,
or be part of your Christmas decor.

Petunia Love...

 A new release petunia.

 Petunia Night Sky has the darkest blue-purple flowers that are speckled with white spots that resemble a stellar night sky!

As soon as I walked through Mitre 10's Garden Centre doors - it grabbed me...
For the flowers are spectacular!

I am planting mine in a large white plastic pot.

($15 each from KMart!)
I'm going to plant two pots the same.

I'm also adding cascade lobelias in a mix of blues, pinks and whites as companion plants.

The lobelias will drape down the sides of the pot.

Petunia Night Sky has a mounding, trailing habit which means it is also good for garden beds and hanging planters.

The height it grows to is 25 to 40cm high.
It requires full sun, regular watering and fertilizing for the best flowering results.

Petunia Night Sky

Newly planted, and I can't wait for the fabulous show of flowers to come.
