Classic Concrete Garden Spheres

Pam from Simple Details is a big fan of outdoor accessories and décor but says, “too much of a good thing can take your space from classic to cluttered and cutesy in no time.” That’s why Pam loves the serene look of Restoration Hardware’s stone garden spheres. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars PER stone, Pam made five stone structures for only $10 TOTAL. Just like her inspiration stones, Pam’s new garden stones are all unique and can withstand the winter cold. That means it’s not to late to whip up a batch of your own classy concrete spheres and spruce up your lawn for fall and winter.

Jeanie says, “It took about 20 minutes and cost $0! My kind of craft!” Mine too {wink}! Jeanie happened to have a canvas on hand, but you could definitely paint the star and stripes on burlap or another fabric to create a hanging flag.
