Are you looking for a small concrete planter or a square flower pot for your indoor or outdoor garden? We propose to manufacture it yourself! With the approach of spring, we begin to think about a decoration with flowers and green plants for our interior gardens or outside, for the balconies and terraces of our houses.
Concrete and wood planter with plant for indoor or outdoor garden
Waiting for the arrival of spring and its beautiful colors, get ready by making this little concrete planter and wood. The realization of this project by Erin Francois is done in three steps. The first is to gather the necessary materials, the second - to make the concrete container and the third - to create the wooden plant pot holder.
Concrete and wood planter for home, terrace or balcony decoration
For the first step, gather the following items: quick drying DIY concrete, a 1.75 l juice box, 50 cl cardboard, a bowl and a spoon that you no longer use (to mix the concrete with water), scissors, duct tape, sandpaper, 1.5 cm thick wooden rods, a saw, a connection plate and screws, hooks and screws, your Electric drill.

Let's move on to the second step. Make the container by preparing your mold using the cardboard, following the illustrations that you will find in our image gallery at the end of the article. Then, once it is ready, mix the concrete with water according to the instructions for use on its packaging. Do not forget to mix the two ingredients well. Pour the mixture into the carton by placing the small cardboard mold and the adhesive tape above it. Let the time dry. When the container is ready, use sandpaper to give a finished look to the surface. Now you can fill your floor planter and plant a plant.
