I made these for the garden swap recently using some forms and letter stamps.  I made another one too that says GROW DAMMIT GROW!  But the DAMMIT sign broke when I tried to lift it (it was still too wet).  They come with little pedestals so they can sit upright.  I plan on making more for myself for the front garden.  I embedded some glass tiles and beads, and for the future, would like to experiment with other embeds.  I was told afterwards that if I use some wire or mesh, they would be stronger and probably do better with fluctuation temps (frosts, etc).

These are really nice. I have played with concrete a couple of times. It is tricky, especially when I can't be patient and let it cure for two weeks or so. What kind of letter stamps did you use?

They were little plastic ones included in a garden stone kit I bought from a local garden store
