This is a cute items to add to your garden or to the indoor pots.
Is really easy and fast to make.

In Italian we call them "ometti" (http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ometto). But they have different names every where you go.


You need:
-Some see stones, of different measures ;
-Stones glue;
-Popsicle stick (large).
<p>How cute. This is now on my to do list. Thank you.</p>
<p>for sure I will be doing this..Thank you so much </p>
<p>such a great idea might do this in my balcony garden </p>
<p>love these. I will be making Fairy Gardens, and these would look great in them. I have built bridges out of rocks for my fish tanks like this, just with aquarium safe silicone.</p>
Love this idea!&nbsp; I made a few for my front porch flower pots!&nbsp; Thanks! :)
Nice! they are cute stones! I'm happy you post the photo!
These look great and easy to make, thanks for posting
you are welcome! Yes they are super easy and they always turn good
How long will this last. If I put it outdoors ? Will the elements destroy it ? Could you get back to us here and see if it lasts through a year's worth of hot, cold, wet, dry weather ? Thanks, just curious, that's me.
I just read your message... I think it really depend on which glue you use. I think if you use tile flu for exteriors thy will probably last many many years. <br>They still god for now anyways...
Thanks for sharing this. What a great idea. I love being in the garden as well as I have lots of house plants. I know what my next project is!! :)
very clever I love your ideas cant wait to try this also.....
i've been looking for something like this for months, that you :D
Awesome! Easy enough to do with my kids, too!
Gorrilla glue is no good! Every time I use it it foams all over and has to be cut or sanded off. Even a small drop foams up. The makers should make a foam-less glue . FYI
Very cool! I think I'll make these as mother's day gifts.
Simple and pleasant to look at! <br>
Thanks! I' m proud of this one!
What a fantastic idea! Great job
Thanks a lot! <br>(and I really like your &quot;Friends Peephole Frame&quot;!)
LOVE! I think these stone totems are called inukshuk? I have all the materials and can't wait to get started on a few for my garden!
Also... just wanted to let people know that gorilla glue doesn't hold up well in hot Summer weather. I'm going to use contact cement because my totems will be outside in my garden.
Thanks! I will add the name in my instructable, and thanks for the tip of the glue, I really didn't know. Post some picture! <br>
'<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inuksuk" rel="nofollow">Inuksuk</a>' only refers to stone in the form of human figures (albeit some can be very simply reduced to single stones).&nbsp; The name means &quot;something which acts for or performs the function of a person&quot; in Inuit and describes a specific style of place marker in Inuit and other Native Arctic cultures.<br> <br> This is a very nice garden statue, but I don't think it would be considered an inukshk. It could definitely be called a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cairn" rel="nofollow">cairn</a> though!
I just post the name in Italian
I like that! Sounds very good.
Thanks. I think they will look great w my cactus, etc..cant wait to get started;-)
You are welcome, and post some photo if you can!
What a great way to decorate planters, they look really nice with succulents.
They look GREAT with succulents!
Afghans build things like that everywhere except out of way bigger rocks and without glue. The only real reason I've seen them, used for except mark IEDs, is to mark a grave site, but besides that they seem pretty random and they are everywhere. That really is cool though and it looks nice, good job.
Thanks! Also in Italy they build them everywhere, especially along rivers, where the stone are smooth.
Just to put it out there those don't even resemble inukshuk, used originally to Mark out directions to food, water, shelter, etc. by the Inuit, and resemble a man.
That's really cool, I love rock gardens..
This is something I will do! Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome!
