How to make vegie garden stakes
Prepare your workspace by laying down some newspaper, plastic or a drop sheet. After deciding how many couplings you'll use, choose your configuration by placing the couplings next to each other.
Now, it's time to start painting! The design is completely up to you – maybe one coupling could have Dad's favourite footy colours? You can paint both the inside and outside for some extra pops of colour.
Once you've painted all the couplings with one coat leave them to dry. Complete a second coat to make sure the colour is strong.
Once the base layers are dry, use the sharpies or different-coloured acrylic paint to decorate your pipes. Every pipe doesn't have to be the same. One could feature a handprint, another could say ‘Number 1 Dad'.
Once you've finished decorating use the reusable adhesive to stick the pipes together. This means Dad can re-arrange them whichever way he likes. If you'd like to use something stronger, you can use glue. Make sure you leave time for the glue to set before wrapping it up for Dad.
