There are a number of creative ways to keep wildlife out of your garden. Some can be scared away with a simple windsock.

You'll need:

  • Black acrylic paint
  • Miniature pumpkins
  • Black and white craft foam
  • Hole punch
  • Glue dots and black duct tape
  • Toothpicks and wooden skewers

Instructions

  1. Remove both ends from the can.
  2. Carefully make two holes in top of can. The holes should be directly across from each other.
  3. Paint, draw, color, and add stickers to the can.
  4. Cut long strips of plastic and glue around the bottom inside of the windsock.
  5. Feed yarn, wire or string through the punched holes, and tie a knot at the end.
  6. Hang and enjoy!
