how i use my concrete creations :)


the things i made with concrete the other week are placed alittle bit here and there in my backyard.
this bowl i made using a rhubarb leaf holds rocks and shells that we collect.
i placed it on my front steps, but i might move it and use it as a birdbath later.


i made some flat shapes aswell.
this one i made using a baking form and when i had poured the concrete into the mold, i put sea glass ontop.
i use it in one of my flowerbeds as a decoration.


more decorations (the leaf shape was a project from last year that went ehum, not so well!, but i love it anyway!) and a stepping stone i made last year where i put strawberry leafs in the bottom so that it would show up when i turned it up side down.
it is great to have something to put my foot on when i pick the weeds!


these are small roses that i put a stick to and use as both decorations and when a plant need some support.
i made them using a ice cube mold!


these are probably my favorites!
first i wanted to use them as stepping stones, but then i needed something to spice up my herbgarden :)


i also wanted to show you a project that didn´t go exactly the way i wanted.
as i made this pot, i used one larger plastic bowl and a smaller one. well, i got the larger one of when the concrete had dried, the smaller one...not so much :) so i sacrified that smaller plastic bowl and took some plants from the garden and this is what i got!
i love it!


have a wonderful day!
and don´t forget to say hi in the comments, it will make me smile :)

They are awesome. I love the one you made with a rhubarb leaf, that will be an amazing birdbath.
