DIY Garden Tile

I found these thick, concrete tiles at the Habitat Restore a few weeks back.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but the color drew me in.  I purchased two of them at .40 a piece. 


I was at Hobby Lobby (in the floral section) and my eye was drawn to these beads.  How great is that shade of green?  I bought one bag priced at $2.99, and used a 40% off coupon.


 I decided to pair the blue tile and green beads to make monogrammed art for the kids for our backyard flower beds.  The obvious way to go for me is a "D" and a "K".  Took me about 10 minutes and project was less than $3.  The colors really pop and look fresh for spring!  I was not sure how they would hold up in the elements, but I am happy to say the sprinklers have been getting them every morning, and they are holding up just fine!  The kids love anything that is "for them", so everyone is happy!
