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!

|Thanks Lin and Pegi! It took me about two years of collecting information, instructions, etc. before I attempted my first one and I was amazed how easy it was! After a frustrating attempt to make concrete leaves once I think the only thing holding me back was my anxiety with mixing the cement. QuikWall made it so much easier!|
