Stone Garden Planters
Aren't these cool? They are made with pieces of slate or riverstone and held together with rapid set cement.* We made them in a dishpan of moistened play sand. You stick the stones in the sand upright to create the shape you want the planter to be and then pour in a soupy mix of the cement. We added some black acrylic paint to the cement to make it darker and used pieces of twigs to make drainage holes. To make the cement "soupy" use a proportion of 4 parts cement to 1 part water. You can leave all the mess/work to us and come make one here on Wednesday, June 9th 2010.

* Be sure to use rapid set cement, not concrete. Too much aggregate in the concrete and they will not hold as well.
