DIY Concrete Planter From An Old Towel Or A Fleece Blanket


Making garden objects can be real fun! Especially when you use unexpected things to draw inspiration from or even implement them into the project itself. The next DIY project we’re showcasing involves making a planter from an old towel! The secret is to use concrete to literally turn that towel into the planter you will love. As materials, you will need half a bag of QUIKRETE, water, a couple of 5-gallon buckets and obviously a towel. Don’t forget to wear safety gear and gloves when working with the concrete. Grab your tools – a mixing stick & a drill – and follow the instructions (at the end of the article) to get a similar result you see in the images here.

    How do you get the colored planters? Your instructions don’t mention that. Are those photos from another website that you didn’t link to? I’m wondering if they were spray painted or was there a color added to the concrete? If so, what?

    The Planters must be painted with regular paint. Spray paint won’t leave that much color as it soaks into the cement. They are really fun to make and watch dry out and then figure out what kind of flowers or herbs will work in them. You can make any shape any size you just have to be patient and let the cement dry at least for 48 hours before trying to move them or turn them over. I would paint them while they are upside down so they have something to keep the shape. Good luck and enjoy the DIY

    can the bucket be reused or does it have to stay inside of the finished vessel?
