The Perfect Simple Summer GiftBeaded Barbeque Skewers


Sometimes you just need a quick gift during the summer, whether it's for a party favor, to celebrate a birthday or to bring to a friend's house for a barbeque. Why not choose an easy and creative gift you can make with your kids?


These BBQ Skewers can be used on the barbeque and are dishwasher safe. The beads should not be placed in an open flame or directly over red hot coals. These are also great for fruit kebobs – just cut chunks of fresh fruit, skewer them & chill until ready to eat!

Courtesy of Bead Studio


  • store bought metal skewers
  • 20g craft wire – 1 foot per skewer
  • 4-5 assorted glass beads


  1. Make a spiral at one end of wire.

  2. Anchor wire to the skewer by wrapping about 3 times around. Spiral will be at the top in or near the loop.

  3. Add bead & anchor wire around skewer once or twice.

  4. Continue to add beads & wrap remaining wire around skewer to finish.


Tips to Decorate Your Garden Together!


Windsocks are easy projects that only require a few materials:

You can make your very own windsock with just some colored paper, decorative ribbon and clothespins to hang it from. Your kids can help you decorate your windsock while you cut the ribbon. Click here for the blowin' in the wind windsock project idea. 


Use what you've got:

If you have extra paint (that doesn't stain!) let your kids decorate the fence around the vegetable garden with it. They can make their own signs to label what you're growing too with just some colored markers and paper. If you have extra clay around the house, let them make their favorite animals in clay to put on the patio or in the garden. If you have an abundance of green clay, try making these cute clay turtles!


Make your garden unique and whimsical:

Add your own personal touch to your garden that will make your garden your own. Forget buying that expensive garden gnome! Try something like this bees and hive outdoor decor made out of terra cotta saucers.
