This cheap but sophisticated DIY from Lydia at Pudel Design has my head going about what other shapes and items I might be able to make into a fantastic collection of garden art. (though I have to admit — the buddas are great!)
Lydia was inspired by this …. (a display at anthropologie)
and with the help of these…
and this guy – plus some plaster, paint, dowels and wood.
She created this display….
For the garden I think I would change it up a bit to make the stakes or dowels longer and maybe I might use some driftwood or another piece of interesting wood on which to mount a figure but overall I am inspired by the idea of filling cheap ornaments with plaster in order to create a mount for them, and then painting them in a uniform color.
For a full how to, see Lydia’s post at Pudel Design.
What do you have on hand that would make a great garden ornament like this?
