This had to be one of the easiest DIY’s we’ve done in a long time. We actually made it over two weekends though, instead of just one. We mixed and poured two weekends ago, and then finally pulled it apart this past weekend.
Step 1. Mix the concrete. We used one of these Quikrete products (the hubs would have to specify which one– who knew they had so many?!)
Step 2. Pour wet mixture into a form. For this we used a milk carton and a smaller whipping creme carton. We used tape to help hold the shape.
Step 3. Once it dries (times will vary depending on the mixture) pull it apart.
Step 4 (and 4 1/2). Admire your work. I honestly had no idea it wasn’t going to have a level top. I thought we did enough banging and shaking to have everything level off. But oh well.
Step 5. Give those rough edges a quick rub with some sandpaper.
Step 6. Fill with your desired contents. This little gem was going to be home for a succulent the hubs brought home some weeks ago.
This was so easy to make I can see giving these out as gifts, especially a housewarming gift. (Here is another succulent container I made for my sis.)
