A couple of summers ago, I discovered concrete and... I haven't looked back. I love it. These simple concrete planters are easily $40 each at a nursery, but a quick trip to thrift store and the hardware store, and you can make half a dozen of these for... $20? You'll need a handful of plastic containers and some Quikrete.
I love succulents in my concrete planters, but... ANYthing planted in there will work to brighten up your patio!
Materials: a bucket and trowel for mixing, Quikrete, cooking spray and... lots of varying containers. I found all of these at Goodwill for maybe $6?
Succulents ready to plant!
I tried two different tupes of concrete for comparison's sakes: rough and smooth.
I love them both and can't decide which is my favorite!
Every year, these are the first things I plant on our back patio. I love them! Click here to see some of my other outdoor/ garden projects!
