Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

You need:
-Some see stones, of different measures ;
-Stones glue;
-Cutter;
-Popsicle stick (large).

Step 2: GLUE THE STONES

Glue the stones together,  from the bigger ones to the smaller ones, allowing to dry the glue between each other.
Try to keep every center of the stones in the same hypothetical vertical line, so that they will look in balance.

Step 3: PREPARE THE BASE

You will need to make this stick  so that the stones wont fell down.
Cut two segment of the popsicle stick (of the same size), cut a slash in each one (opposite, and of the same size) in each stick, like in the photo.
Push one segment of the popsicle stick in the other, perpendicular,  forming an "x" shape, like in the photo.

Step 4: GLUE THE STICK

Glue the stick to the larger stone. If some glue come out doesn't really matter 'cause will be hide in the dirt anyways. 

Step 5: STICK IT IN a POT

You are done! Just stick it in a pot!

    How cute. This is now on my to do list. Thank you.

    for sure I will be doing this..Thank you so much

    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.

    Love this idea!  I made a few for my front porch flower pots!  Thanks! :)

    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.
    They still god for now anyways...
