Make your own concrete leaves

Attractive concrete garden ornaments.

From building material to decorative material: concrete is wonderfully versatile as it can be cast into almost any shape. Ideal for brightening up any garden, it can be used to make a variety of low-cost ornaments such as a home-made plant-pot holder or bird bath.

Craft and DIY stores stock a wide range of concrete for craft and do-it-yourself projects. It’s so easy to use that even those who aren’t practically-minded can end up with fabulous results. The leaves shown here look very real – and that's partly true, because for this beautiful garden art idea we used large rhubarb leaves as moulds for the cement leaves. Their natural appearance has been retained by spraying with edding Permanent Spray. As well as making lovely concrete garden ornaments, they also make great bird baths.
