    indyclone25's indiana jones themed backyard area

    hello folks,
    my wife gave me a corner of her garden to do a Indiana Jones themed set.
    after working on it for about 3 weeks we finished on father's day
    ( we still need moss for the idol altar) but i think it looks cool , let me know what you think
    what the yard section looked like at first

    then with some plants and tiki lights ( solar powered --- from kmart)

    then with some cement to make a patway with cement stencil

    i chimeara ( hope i spelled that right) and added some plants inside the mouth

    then i bought some bamboo furniture and bamboo stick and fencing


    and then making masks from a kit sold at kmart to hang on the fence with planters behind to make it look cool


    then some more add ons , and old trash can filled with expanding foam to make it look like rock and spray paint



    and ta, da!!! finished ( except for moss on the altar)!!

    That is outstanding! Really, really cool! Unfortunately, the winters here would decimate a lot of that so you'd have to move some inside. Really great though and really nice of your wife to give you your own corner!
    Out here not knowing a dang thing.

    That is SOOOO COOL!!! That really did wonders to that area and I love the whole exotic/Indyesque motif. The Idol pedestal turned out great and really looks like it came out of the film. Make sure no one steps on the blocks the wrong way or... OUCH! Also, I see that you have some snakes meandering your abode - "Snakes... why did it have to be snakes?!"

    Totally needs some of those rock looking outdoor speakers with a loop that alternates jungle sounds and the opening music from Raiders.
    Nothin' more foolish than a man chasin' his hat.
