Cast Concrete Leaves

By HollyAnnS
April 23, 2016

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.

HollyAnn, That is so beautiful Lovey dubby and I love the paint color you chose!

I saw a similar cement leaf fountain project in a magazine article awhile ago but the finished product was nowhere near as pretty! Great job! Thumbs up

Thanks Lin, It sure was a fun thing to do and has now weathered several winters and still looks just as good as when it was first done.
Life is Great! Holly
