DIY Concrete Flowerpot

Allgemein, Decor, Flowerpot

I love the spring season as everything is becoming green. Only my apartment is still in winter mode. So I was searching for some nice plants for my home. For me a plant must bring additional value and should not only look good. So I was searching for herbs and bought a pot of cress. When I was home I realized that I have no pot for such an herb. So I decided to build one by myself with the help of concrete. Following my easy 4 step DIY approach, I demonstrate how you get the best results.

I got inspired by all the nice Pinterest posts that I found, when I was typing in “concrete” and made my own DIY Concrete Deco pin board.

You can buy concrete already mixed with sand or unmixed. I used unmixed concrete, but I think it is much easier, when you take the mixed version.
