Sculpt a mold for the cap, and press it into WET sand lined with a thin sheet of plastic, and slowly fill with concrete. Add realism by removing small wedges of concrete along the edge of the cap. Cap mold: A circle of cloth sheeting could be draped over a bowl/balloon, and brushed with concrete. The wavy edges could be created with rolled up newspaper under the edge of the cloth.

may try to do this with the gloves and hypertufa recipe. Would be cute for birdseed or succulents. - ruggedthug
