Graduation 2013 Party decorative Picks

Yes.. I am in full graduation mode here. :0)

Another project I just completed is making some fun Picks to place in the yard, flower pots or near the steps perhaps..

I used a package of glitter 2013 numbers that I purchased for less than a dollar (3 in a package), but you could easily make these yourself with cardstock and glitter.  However, for less than a dollar - that was money well spent to not have a glitter mess in my book.  :0)

Items needed: I used wood skewers, glitter 2013 numbers, a sheet of blue foam (which can be found in most craft departments for less than .50 cents), scissors, and my hot glue gun.

I simply placed 2 of the numbers onto the blue foam and cut it to the size I wanted.

Then I placed some hot glue onto the wood skewer, and positioned it onto the back of the numbers.

Then I used hot glue all over the back of the number and placed it on the foam.

I have a fun, inexpensive decoration that can be placed pretty much anywhere outdoors.
I am thinking one of them will go nicely in my large flower pot by the deck..
I haven't decided on where I will place the 2nd one yet. 
Oh, and I still have another one to make something with as well.  :o)

Have a great Wednesday!
