Here is my latest creations. These are creek rocks glued to 3/4 inch copper caps. I took a piece of copper pipe and pushed it into the ground then sat the copper cap/rock on top. Simple project.

Clever & cute!
Oh, Cindee! STOP IT! Stop giving me more things to add to my to-do list!!! :o) These are INCREDIBLE!!!! I think you should relocate them though...to my gardens in the Pacific Northwest! Did you use GEII glue? FANTASTIC IDEA!!!! They're beautiful! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!!!! Bear Hugs! Kirk
Those are really cute! Another project I am going to have to try...
Oooooh!!! Too many fantastic ideas here - I love those! Great for my new rock garden that currently only exists in my mind. :-)
Did you coat them with a poly finish or anything or are they just wet? What kind of glue? Need all info please. Gonna go thru DH's rock pile today and save the good ones. He's talking about using them for fill so I must save some for this project.
great idea thanks
Cindee- That project has such an artistic flare to it. You did great!!!
They're great! ...I want to make some!!!
I love your mushrooms. the 2009 Small Gardens magazine shows a lady who uses rock for sculpture. She does mushroom with rocks alone. She has a web site that you might like to look at. I have not been there yet. I also thought about making some of driftwood.

Oh I love the rock on rock idea for the mushrooms. I will have make a dew of those next!!! Thanks for the idea
Yes, I did us GE II glue
Those are wonderful. In the first two photos, are the rocks glued on the side of the pipe? Or did you find neat rocks that were concave to look like that?
Such a great idea.
Soooooo cute !! All 'shrooms are different .... these look real !
Cindee, great idea, really cute. I just love smooth river rocks. ~tenderlee

I found special rocks to fit the caps(-: They are all glued on top(-:
