If you follow my blog at all, you would know I am in love with spay paint. Not just a little but a lot. I know, my husband is a tad jealous but he is use to it by now. These spray painted mason jars were one of my favs.
I made several of these from a leftover bag of cement and some rhubarb leaves. The birds love them, and so easy to make.
Make a mound of sand or dirt, lay the leaf face down with the veins facing up. Apply the cement to the fop of the leaf in the thickness desired, make sure it will be sturdy. You can shape the edges of the leaves. Cover with plastic for a few days, uncover, turn it over and remove the leaf. You may need to use a stiff brush for this or just wait and it will breakdown. Enjoy!!
I used old window shutters and added a wavy, bubble-type plastic as the insert. I outlined my picture with black fabric paint and painted it with stained-glass paint. They are currently being used to winter over my plants, but I will make tops and bottoms for the plant stands using some redwood scraps we have.
