Having a Ball Concrete spheres bring lasting beauty to any garden. Cast a half sphere at a time, using 10-, 12-, or 15-inch-diameter molds. Sandwich two halves to make a round with a spread of mortar holding the pieces together. Dabs of outdoor acrylic paint add a mossy appearance that becomes even more realistic with weather and age.
Using a bowling ball or thick glass light fixture globe (that’s what I use), some decorations, and adhesive, you can make one for approximately $5-20. I’ve provided free instructions below.
Attractive and unusual, garden art created from old junk not only enhances all styles and sizes of gardens, but also encourages ecologically friendly practices by recycling what already exists. Gardeners are creative at giving a new and exciting lease of life to found objects adding a bit of whimsy, interest and personality to their gardens while turning waste into a resource.
