The concrete trend in interiors is just as strong as ever and what’s not to love about this raw and beautiful product?!
Today we show you how to create a large concrete planter, a perfect way to decorate an outdoor tabletop.
Items you will need
- Mixing bowl and spoon
- Two plastic moulds
- Paint (we used Coral Serenade and Black Pitch)
- Paint brush
- Masking tape
- Mix up a batch of concrete following the instructions on the packet. You want to make enough to fill your plastic mould at least 5cm deep. We used a large plastic basin that is 40cm diameter and needed around half a bucket of concrete.
- While the concrete is wet, sit your smaller mould inside (this will be where you plant your succulents). We used a small plastic bowl with a diameter of 15cm and placed it off-centre.
- Allow to dry for 72 hours and then remove the moulds.
- Use masking tape to create a pattern. You could use more than two colours or try different shapes and patterns such as triangles.
- Paint two coats of paint and once dry, remove the tape and plant your succulents.
Be sure to water your plants at least once a week!
