How to Make Modern Cement Planters

Let’s adore our homes with these lovely planters that will keep those succulents in our homes looking as fresh as ever. If you have greenery in your home, you should definitely try this. Today we’re going to learn how to make some modern cement planters. You will surely have fun mixing colors and you can even choose colors to fit your home interior.

Materials needed:

  • Cement (it’s the glue that binds the other ingredients)
  • Vermiculite (you can use sand instead, but the planters become very heavy)
  • Peat moss, pearlite, gravel or rock (add for fun!)
  • Gloves
  • Apron
  • Food containers
  • Plastic Bucket
  • Succulents
  • Shovel
  • 3 – 9 x 12 pieces of sheet metal or plexiglass. (Approximate 9 x 12. Just an easy size to work with.)
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Scissors
  • Sand paper
  • Drill

I saw the cement planters and I thought you may enjoy making some of these. I still think we could make some items like these and maybe some of the pallet projects and take them to a craft fair or something and see what kind of reception we receive. If people are really interested in them and we enjoy making them, why not? It could be a fun way to make some extra cash. Definitely faster than me knitting or crocheting items to sell.
