Scrubbie Slug Barriers and Felt Tote Bag for Barbie

The garden is just beginning to take off and grow, I'll share pics soon. As I've mentioned before, my biggest issue is slugs, they are ~everywhere~. This year I tried something new, I unrolled those copper colored metal scrubbers from Dollar Tree and cut them into circles, then used them as collars or barriers to try to keep the slugs away from the plants. While far from garden art, they do seem to help. The picture is from when I first planted about a month ago. They will rust. The idea is to stretch the circle open, slide it either up over the root ball before planting, or stretch it carefully over the plant once planted. Then nestle a little into the dirt.

And Barbie is ready for summer! We made a cute Tote Bag out of Felt, it comes together in no time with hot glue. Be sure to stop by, I'm sure your girl will want one, (or three) in different colors and designs:@)

🦞Have a great weekend:@)


  1. Barbie looks like she's ready to head to Maine! You've reminded me that I haven't seen slugs on our hosta in years. Now that I've typed that, they'll probably return!!! Hope you're having a nice weekend!!!

  2. You are so clever with those slug barriers, Lynn! They are nasty little critters. Barbie’s felt bag is so cute! Happy Sunday!


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
