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.

  1. Source of inspiration

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.

2. Materials needed

Money Concrete: 13,87€ / 2,5kg = ca. 5,55€ per 1kg

Money 2 plastic pots: I took 2 empty pickled cabbage-pots (1 small & 1 bige one)

Total cost = 5,55€ per pot (depending on the size)

search v2 Where to find: 

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.
