MAKE THESE SUPER EASY CONCRETE HAND PLANTERS/BOWLS IN 20 MINUTES

I had been wanting to try my hand at making something out of concrete. I've seen a lot of planters and I figured that would be an easy place to start. Plus, my mom loves succulents so I wanted to make something she would like for her garden. I'm very excited to share my new concrete hand planters. My mom loves them so they've made a great Mother's Day gift.
There was a little trial & error along the way, and I have to admit I had a major fail in the beginning. I bought the wrong kind of concrete. I quickly learned that there are lots of different kinds of concrete. But once I got the right cement it was seriously soooo easy and only took me about 20 minutes to make four hands.
