Creating Recycled Garden Art
Bowling for art.   Another simple idea is this sculpture made using colorful bowling balls purchased at local thrift stores. I bought them over a period of time because I like to scatter them around my garden for added color, and I like the shape. The balls were placed on top of copper pipes by shoving the pipe into one of the finger holes, then the other end of the rod was pushed into the ground.  It doesn't get much simpler than this to create a unique garden feature.  The rods can be whatever you can find.  I just happened to have some old copper pipes left from a remodel job.  If you don't have anything handy, you can buy some inexpensive pieces of re-bar at your local big box hardware store in the cement department.
