Cement Leaf-Gunnera


I made this cement leaf a few years ago that sits underneath our windchime tree. The leaf is from my Gunnera plant pictured in photo.I got this idea from a post where someone was painting rocks in the glow in the dark paint. So I went searching for paint and picked up some glow in the dark spray paint at wal-mart and sprayed it this year. Then I added some shinny sparkle spray. Now when people pull into our driveway my leaf puts out a wonderful glow.

    If you google casting cement leafs you will get many websites that have wonderful directions along with video's to watch. This is step by step and the same way I did mine.
