Fall for DIY

DIY concrete planters are an easy project that will let you express your creativity and style. They look great with a succulent or air plant tucked into them but they also make great vases or a catch-all for your keys and wallet.

Each of these projects starts with making concrete and pouring it into a mold to make the shape of the planter. The concrete is then released from the mold, forming the final planter. You can then decorate the planter with paint or leave it in its natural state. Working with concrete may sound intimidating, but it's actually a pretty easy medium to figure out—so much so that even kids can even get in on the action.
