This DIY rock garden puts family first

DIY projects are a fun and creative way to personalize interior and exterior home design. What makes one of these projects even better is when it can be done on a budget, and the final product delivers a meaningful message. Instead of spending hard-earned funds on wall art or accent items that spell out something that speaks to the heart, grab some rocks, and create a garden that honors family instead.
Taking a little time to simply look around the home and yard often reveals a collection of ideal materials needed for creating a family rock garden. Six large rocks will do the trick, and a little paint is all it takes to add a letter to each one. When placed together on a patio, these rocks spell out the word ‘family.’ Let guests know what values are held close in the home by creating a variety of rock gardens that spell out important words. While this rock garden’s natural look allows it to fit seamlessly into outdoor décor, it could also be positioned on a coffee table or bookshelf indoors.
