such a great idea might do this in my balcony garden

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.

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.
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!! :)

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.
marcellahella (author)  bajablue2 years ago
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!
'Inuksuk' only refers to stone in the form of human figures (albeit some can be very simply reduced to single stones).  The name means "something which acts for or performs the function of a person" in Inuit and describes a specific style of place marker in Inuit and other Native Arctic cultures.

This is a very nice garden statue, but I don't think it would be considered an inukshk. It could definitely be called a cairn though!

I like that! Sounds very good.

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.
marcellahella (author)  HickLife2 years ago
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..
