If you’re like me and could easily list crafting and gardening as your two favourite pass times, then I’d be willing to bet that you love it just as much as I do when you find a new opportunity to combine those things in one place. I’ve actually been doing that a lot lately thanks to my newfound love of DIY fine particle cement projects; there are a shocking number of awesome homemade things you can create from cement that will help you display your plants and greenery all over your home, both inside and out. I’ve been playing with all different shapes, sizes, and styles when it comes to DIY pots and planters and I was s happy with this slightly taller model I made last week that I just couldn’t help documenting all the steps that went into it so that other crafters an try their hand at making their own version as well.
Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this project, you’ll need:
- DIY fine particle cement
- A spoon
- A paintbrush
- Acrylic paint (silver and black)
- An empty plastic yogurt cup
- A plastic cup
Gather your materials!
Add water to your DIY fine particle cement mix and stir it with your spoon until you get it clump free and the right consistency. Follow the directions on the back of your package to get the right ratio of water to powdered mix, since it can vary from brand to brand.
