While I’m on the subject of strawberries…I made these painted rocks that look like strawberries. The theory is that birds will come check out the “strawberries” and realize they’re rocks and leave alone the real strawberries when they come in.
I picked up some enamel paint at a yard sale last week for $1 and rocks are free. I picked mostly heart shaped or triangle type rocks to look like a strawberry shape. Paint your rocks red first and let that dry completely before doing the leaf and seed details. I initially couldn’t get the cap off the black paint so I did the seeds in silver and then dabbed over it with black. I think it looks pretty neat and similar to actual strawberry seeds.
