Beautiful!

I like to use the plastic deli tray lids, cake lids from the grocery, etc... they work great. all you do is lay the stones, marbles, shell, glass tiles whatever you like, pour concrete in,add chicken wire, let set and there you go .

Melody, the hanger will be on the bottom, on this stone the top Is the top and you decorate it with whatever you like (marbles, shells, stones, ect) The hanger is to re-enforce the concrete .....

Oh. Duh! I was thinking the wrong thing! I thought the wire hanger would be the mold. Don't mind me, my brain went out for a walk!:toothy:

Sara, I love those. I had not seen the ones like that. I wonder what kind of leaf that they used. I don't think I have seen any that big in this area. I love the way they look on the ground. I will take some pictures of the ones that I make and post them. I am going to try to do some next week.

Kathy, they used rhubarb leaves. Oooh I have rhubarb leaves!! They are just starting to go by. I hope they'll wait till I can do this. Thanks! If not this year definately next, just the perfect outdoor nature accent.

Those look so cute. I have not had a chance to make any yet, the rain came and it has either been too wet or the humidity has been to high to try to make them but hopefully it will stay dry and I can make some soon.

Thanks for the link.
