Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! I went to the Charlotte NASCAR race on Sunday & fell even more in love with racing, it was an amazing night. Now on to this easy diy. A few days ago I posted a diy for concrete letters & ampersand & I’ve been having fun creating different things out of concrete. I’m still messing around with a few other concrete projects, but I finished these concrete planters & couldn’t wait to share them with you all.
I used everything that I used to make the letter & ampersand (see here), except instead of using the letter & ampersand, I used some tupperware & Coca-Cola cans.
Before mixing the concrete, I sprayed the inside of the tupperware & the cans with cooking spray, that way it’d be easier to take them out of the concrete & tupperware. I then mixed the concrete and poured a fourth of concrete into the tupperware & then pushed the cans in the center. I poured concrete around the cans & then let the concrete dry overnight. The cans came out pretty easily with a few pulls & the concrete came out right when I pulled it out of the tupperware. I sanded down certain areas that needed it & then I had concrete planters!
I now have these lovely concrete planters sitting on my window sill & I’m sure I’ll be adding more very soon, because you can never have too many planters.
Have you made concrete planters before or anything out of concrete? What do you think of these concrete planters? I’d love to know! As always, thanks for stopping by!
