I am back from Michigan and enjoying the beautiful Texas weather. Working in the yard and whipping it back into shape after my three month absence. My children have inhereted my love of gardening so I have decided to make them birdbaths for their gardens.

    I love this idea but a couple questions; what type of leaf may I substitute for the one you've used...does it have to be a real leaf? Secondly after the concrete has dried 100% how do you peal the leaf away?

    Hi Kelly. I have only used real leafs as they deteriorate and you can scrub them away with a hose and a brush. Any larger leaf will do, banana, elephant ear, rhubarb, or you can use smaller leaves and overlap them. Perhaps an artificial one will work if you grease it up first with something like vaseline.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
