Drew had his eye on these stone spheres at Restoration Hardware, but couldn’t justify spending $100 for two. Our knockoff? Less than $8 for the set!
- concrete mix
- toy balls
- large disposable container
- mixing tool
- something to funnel the concrete into your mold
Cut a hole in the ball (just big enough to funnel concrete inside). Mix up concrete (according to directions on package) in your disposable container. Funnel concrete into your mold. Placing the ball in a bowl will help to keep the bottom from completely flattening out. You may need to add a little more concrete as it settles in the mold. Smooth off any excess concrete.
Let concrete dry overnight. Carefully cut a slit in your mold and peel it off.
Use sandpaper to smooth any roughness off of the top. Rinse with water to get rid of any lingering concrete dust.
That’s it! Such an easy (and inexpensive!) way to create a solid statement piece for any table or desk!
