Concrete pumpkin

Beautiful selfmade pumpkin of portland cement and fine quarz sand.


Mix 2 cups of sand, 1 cup cement with 2/3 of a cup of water until you get an smooth mixture. Fill the concrete into a nylon stocking and compact the mixture by tapping to avoid voids. When the requested size is reached, knot the stocking and tie the ball with some rubber bands - so you create the typical pumpkin hollows. Let it dry for 2 days and then decorate it with a branch and leaf. The concrete pumpkin is perfect for the autumn decoration and as a souvenir for the next garden party.
