Concrete Dipped Berry Box Planters ~

I love planting in unconventional containers…my niece recently bought her 1st house and ended up with all sorts of things left behind by the previous owner including stacks of old green pulp berry boxes…
Gathered a few supplies...
No real recipe...I just used a couple cups of Quikrete Vinyl Patch (any fine texture concrete would work) and added enough water to make a medium thin consistency mixture…
I dipped the berry boxes in the concrete mixture covering them but being careful not to soak them out of shape and set them out to dry...
Once dry they were ready to go...I lined them with landscape cloth to hold the dirt and dropped in some plants...
They turned out exactly how I hoped they would…love when that happens!
