    DIY concrete spheres - make these for your garden using plastic beach balls and wrap in 1/2" mesh taped to ball. Then apply concrete and let dry. Could use hints of acrylic color or add the moss-grow mixture for moss balls. hmmm...

    wasting a perfectly good light fixture makes no sense to me ..i would rather use it in my garden ..it could be painted any color or you could hot glue pennies or marbles to it. I would save the concrete for something else

  • Anny

    Spray paint the light fixture with stone-look paint? Save all the work of mixing and pouring the concrete, and end up with a lighter product.

    Use a rubberball instead. Make a hole to pour the concrete into the ball. Choose the spot where the valve are and cut around it. When the concrete is hardened, slice four times from the hole and Down to the middle of the ball, as you would cut an orange in four, but stop when you reach the middle of the ball. Now you can bend the four slices backwards and the concrete ball falls out. Now you can use the ball again, just patch it up with Gaffa tape.

    forgot to mention that you can use a little food oil to rub inside the ball, so that the concrete donĀ“t stick to the sides of the ball.
