Tutorial ~ How To Make a Hollow Concrete Sphere

By rcn48
May 3, 2012

Concrete statuary in some of the gardens I've visited has always captivated me. Unfortunately most statuary I've priced is quite expensive and with my tight budget the chances were slim that any of these creations would ever find themselves in my gardens. However, several years ago I was intrigued when I stumbled upon instructions for making "hollow concrete spheres". I was pleased to learn the cost of materials is fairly inexpensive and last year successfully completed my first sphere. I'd like to show you how easy it is and hopefully inspire you to create your own hollow concrete sphere!

Have you ever used portland cement with peat?

This is a wonderful Sphere (or Orb as I like to call them) They still look very nice if left more rustic looking as well, as then they mimic rock. I think many people are sacred to try something since they feel they won't get the perfection needed...
