Has anyone made their own yard shrine/nicho?  I am wanting to make one for my patio, but was looking for some instructions for using concrete/adobe & rocks or whatever will stand up to the elements the best!!  I don't want it to be too large or heavy(it has to be able to fit on top of my air conditioning unit).  Any suggestions or help will be most appreciated!!  Grin Muchas Gracias mi amigos!!

Oooops!! Descansos are actually roadside shrines......so I guess I am not as interested in making those as I am a yard shrine!!

lol! My parents have St. Francis in their rose bed and it looks really pretty. I grew up in a Catholic part of town and one of my friends growing up had a beautiful Mary statue encased in a brick arched alcove with ivy trellising over it *drools and says a hail mary*. What kind of design are you looking for?

Not looking at a design so much as the instructions on how to work with the brick or concrete or adobe!!  I have been studying alot of the shrines from Mexico (looking at books and photos from relatives that live there) - some of the work is fantastic, they really are beautiful works of art!
