Easy DIY Plant Pot Cover With Fluted Texture
Plant Pot Cover Video Tutorial
Step 1. Cut concrete form tube down to size.
I decided to make our plant pot cover 8 inches tall, so I measured and marked a line down 8 inches one side of the concrete form tube.
To cut the concrete form tube, simply use a hand saw and cut carefully along the line you drew. It helps to clamp the tube down into place to prevent it from rolling around while you try to cut it.
After it is cut, you can smooth out the edge with sandpaper.
Step 2. Spray paint concrete form tube.
We’re going to be adding trim pieces to the outside of the concrete form tube, so it would be seeing, but just in case any slivers of the tube are seen from outside in between the trim, it helps to paint in the same color that your planter pot cover will be.
You also want to paint the inside of the tube so it looks cohesive.
Step 3. Cut trim pieces down to size.
Using a miter saw, cut your trim pieces all down to size. Be sure to watch the video tutorial above for a quick tip on how to get them all cut to the exact same length without having to measure each piece.
Step 4. Glue trim pieces to tube.
Once the concrete form tube is fully dry, you can glue on your trim pieces. DAP’s Rapid Fuse All Purpose Adhesive works like a charm for this.
Just put the glue on the back of the trim piece and press and hold in place for 30 seconds. The glue grabs in 30 seconds and will fully cure in just 30 minutes.
Step 5. Paint plant pot cover.
The last step is to spray paint the plant pot cover with more matte black spray paint. I think I did about 3-4 light coats.
Then you simply just pop it on the floor and drop your plant pot into place. It will cover the ugly plastic pot on your plants (both real and faux). I love how it turned out and the fluted texture is just so cute, right!
