I have a thing for red polka dot fabric at the moment which is in my kitchen, this has been extended into the back garden with the mushroom.
My husband and i made it, from some spare cement, we used a large fruit bowl as a mold for the top and a plant pot filled with cement for the bottom.
My husband painted it, however he needs to repaint the door as i feel it should be brown.

It weighs a ton so no one will be able to steal it.


If you want to make one here a mini tutorial

1) fill top mould (we used an old metal fruit bowl but we has diffiuctly taking it out, so plastic may be better) with cement/or stones and cement, then in the middle you need to place a bent metal coat hanger leaving a loop sticking out of the cement, this needs to be a bit squashed together as it will go through the hole in the bottom plant pot. This makes the whole thing stick together better. Leave to dry for a few days.

2) remove from the mould and place upside down so wire coat hanger is sticking up towards the sky. Take a terracota pot and put the wire through the hole in the bottom, you may have to make the hole a bit bigger. Sit it centrally in where you want it to be stuck permanantly. Then carefully fill with thick cement. leave to dry.

3) Thats it, the pot stays on theres no need to remove it, now its ready for painting and varnishing.

This is my first ever tutorial so if you feel the instructions are not clear then get in touch
Have fun and enjoy!

how about cutting out another set of the fringe bits then sewing them together, stuff medium firm then sew like quilting lines in swirls for definition. Its hard to explain what i mean so i hope you understand
