While gravel serves a driveway well, it often lacks pizzazz. Adding color to a gravel driveway can liven up your landscaping and create interest. One of the benefits of this project is that it doesn't have to break your budget. Instead, you can utilize a few household items you already have on hand, and instantly add color and original style to your bland gravel driveway without spending money.
Things You'll Need
- Colored plates or pottery
Place the plate or piece of pottery on 1/2 of a towel. Pull the other half of the towel over the top.
Hit the item with a hammer to break it. Hit the item continuously until it breaks into gravel-size pieces. Lift the towel periodically to monitor your progress.
Pick up the broken pieces in the towel and dump them into a bucket. Break up other plates or pottery into pieces until you have filled the bucket.
Scatter the contents of the bucket evenly onto your gravel driveway to add color.
