Spring is in full bloom here in Chicago. Summer is fast upon us. It’s time to once again turn our attention to the great outdoors. I’ve always been a fan of lawn art especially concrete or sculptural pieces. That’s why I’m absolutely in love with this DIY Concrete Garden Orb!
This orb looks superb in the yard! It’s easy to construct and is very budget friendly. I made this one for under $10.
I know you’ll want to make your own. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Concrete Mix
- Glass Light Orb (Search your local thrift store, the more ornate the pattern, the better!)
- Non Stick Cooking Spray
- Tape Roll (to rest your orb on while drying)
- Container/Bucket to Mix Concrete in
- Plastic Cup (used to scoop concrete mix)
- Safety Glasses
Mark: this is amazing. You sacrificed a beautiful glass vase thingie to make a concrete sculpture. How clever and interesting!
Thank you, Amanda!
wonderful idea, as always!!
may have to try this. local thrift store has some globes for as little as 50 cents.
Wonderful! Please send over a picture when you finish.
I am so doing this!
Yay! Please send over a picture after you finish.
definitely not a project to do with the kiddos – at least not that last part – but so cool. if i end up doing it, i’ll definitely share w you. thanks for the inspiration!
You’re correct! It’s definitely not a kid friendly project, but I do have lots of other kid friendly ones throughout the site. Hope to see yours soon.
