DIY garden plug birds out of concrete just make it yourself – garden decoration
[Advertising links] Simply pour concrete garden plugs yourself with a latex mold. This craft idea is perfect as a decoration for the garden. Today I made a little DIY out of concrete for you again. I just love concrete, I could spend hours on it. I find it totally relaxing and I can totally switch off, and I also think it’s amazing what can be made of concrete. You can find even more concrete ideas here.

You can cast so many beautiful things out of concrete yourself. I like to use latex molds or plastic molds, but Styrodur sheets are also ideal for pouring concrete.
My favorite concrete works are definitely the concrete letters, the rabbit vase, the dalla horses, the tea lights with hearts, the egg cups and the plaster bowls. But now for the instructions!
Step by step handicraft instructions:
First, put some concrete in a bowl. You don’t need too much concrete for the little bird. Then always add a small sip of water and stir everything with a spoon. The mass should not be too runny, otherwise the stem won’t hold up later.
Now fill your latex mold with your concrete mass.
I cut a hole in a thick piece of paper so I could hang the shape in there. I then hung it over a glass. This is exactly what you should do, otherwise you unfortunately have to hold the shape until the concrete has dried.
Then tap the glass a few times on a firm surface so that you have fewer bubbles in the concrete later.
Then carefully insert the stem into the mass.
Now it’s time to wait, wait and wait again. I always leave my concrete in the latex form for about 3 days, so I can be sure that something doesn’t break off after all.
And this is how the little birds look now.
Do you like these little garden plug birds? I think they’re so cute!
