Concrete DIY Projects
We’ve written about a planter project from Camila Arvidsson’s book Concrete Garden Projects where you can find many planters of different shapes and sizes. But when it comes to containers pots aren’t the only thing you can use to create a shape.
This peculiar planter by The Rustic Willow is an old towel washed in concrete and hung over a bucket to create a container shape and left to dry for a day or two. The result is quite pretty.
This project is just in time for Christmas. Imagined and created by blogger Anette Krogh Pedersen this one looks pretty easy and straightforward. All you need is a bit of concrete and a bunch of old Christmas baubles you’re not using anymore. Voila, put your concrete decorations in a bird bath or a planter and set it out on your porch. You can also spray paint them if you want.
Garden Glove offers a tutorial of these decorative concrete globes that would be great for any landscape. You’ll need a few old spherical lampshades and some polishing tools.
Finally, a grand project for those who is either bold enough to make it their first concrete masterpiece or those who feel more confident due to experience. A concrete fire pit from ManMadeDIY. A beautiful bowl-shaped pit that works off gel fuel and holds decorative fire pit stones for decoration.
