Cinder block outdoor candle holder :) my mom's idea

concrete cinder blocks

CINDER BLOCK STAIRS...use dirt and some "step-able" plants for a greener area! Plus the cinder blocks can be painted to look like brick or stone.

Must make!!! "Building a bench out of concrete blocks is an unusual and an inexpensive solution! Just add a few cushion and your ready to go! The best thing, the bench will never rot or have to be re-painted." On the down-side it'll still look like you piled some ugly concrete blocks in your yard instead of making something nice.
