Cast Concrete Leaves

By HollyAnnS

Are you in need of a nice birdbath or fountain? Maybe you need a present for a friend or family member? Do you have some rather large leaves and don't know what to do with them? Maybe some nice big Hosta, Canna, Castor Bean, or tropical plant leaves? Well I have an idea: Let's make some cast concrete leaves.

Having seen this in person, I can say it is utterly fantastic and beautiful. The paint treatment turned out wonderful. Thanks for writing about how-to!
