Faux Lead Garden Ornament

Faux Lead Garden Ornament

I used this old paint technique to create an faux lead look on a cement cherub plaque. This was one that I made in a gardening club group several years ago and it worked just as well today. It’s one way to get that English cottage garden feel in the garden for a fraction of the cost.

Several years ago I was part of a garden club. Each month we would take turns hosting a project that everyone could make. For one of them, we created faux lead garden ornaments from concrete pieces we bought at a local merchant. Last fall while we were traveling, I noticed a man on the side of the road selling these cute little concrete garden pieces, and they reminded me of the project. So I picked up a nice cherub plaque to hang in the garden.
