I try to find uses for the styrofoam as my green act.

-I found a box of onyx chess pieces at the thrift store,
-Glass tiles at the warehouse closeouts for 1.00 a sheet. -The styrofoam from from the printer I purchased.

This is the beginning of the pedestal. The pot will follow to top this pedestal so you have to come back to see the final product.

Chess peices

I did a tutorial in Garden Ideas. I use outdoor caulking. If you are using the brown stones or decor the brown caulking works great because it shows around the rocks like a grout and blends in with the stones.

I have used marble stones and used the white grout.

You are going to put the caulking on thick so your final project grout is your caulking.
