DIY Concrete Planter

The Internet is a melting pot brimming with learning opportunities and tutorials for creating spectacular things from simple materials. Cement alone can help produce charming items, like a concrete pumpkin for your succulents or a DIY concrete planter we’ll be learning to make today.

Don’t dismiss such disposable items as rubber gloves and plastic bottles either — they will come in handy in creating this unique flower pot with a stand for your garden.

DIY Concrete Planter

Supplies:

  • cement
  • plastic funnel or bottle
  • 10 pairs of disposable rubber gloves
  • 2 deep dishes
  • 2 flat dishes
  • putty knife
  • all-purpose brush
  • paintbrush
  • paint

Instructions:

  1. Combine concrete mix with water in a large bowl according to the instructions on the label. Use a funnel or a cut-off top of a plastic bottle to fill the disposable gloves with the mix before tying them up.
  2. To achieve the necessary shape, make sure to let the gloves with the cement set at an angle. To do this, you can make a small depression in the ground.
  3. When the cement has set, cut the gloves and take out the resulting sculptures. Grease both the deep and flat dishes with machine oil before filling them up with the cement.
  4. Let the cement in the flat dishes set. Meanwhile, insert the sculptures into the deep dishes: six into one and four into the other. Make a hole in the center of one of them and let set.
  5. Gently remove the set pieces from the dishes. To make the DIY concrete planters sturdy, add another layer of cement at the base and let set.
  6. Connect the two flat parts using cement.
  7. Paint the finished planter and stand and decorate as you wish.
  8. The result is a fabulous pot and stand for an outdoor plant.

Now you know how to make a spectacular DIY concrete planter using cement mix and disposable gloves. Let your imagination soar, create your own masterpieces, and don’t forget to share pictures!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.

I must say you have done a excellent job with this. Also,
the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a
lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is
very much appreciated.

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
