DIY Cement Planter Bowls | Centsational Model

I had a set of acrylic nesting bowls I had deliberate to make use of to make plaster molds for my clay creations, however on second look determined they’d make good types for cement planters too. I selected them as a result of the textured sample is on the within of the bowl not the surface, so it permits the surface of the planters to have the attention-grabbing ridged form.

These planters you possibly can create in a single afternoon, they’re easy to make with small quantities of cement and make distinctive tabletop planters for flowers or succulents. Spring has arrived right here in California so this was the right little mission so as to add some seasonal annuals to the entrance porch.



Provides to recreate these planter bowls: set of 4 acrylic bowls; fast setting cement; tarp; bucket & stir stick; vegetable or olive oil; measuring cup; pebbles or rocks for weights; spray paint (non-compulsory); soil & flowers.


Step One: Prep the within and out of doors of the bowls by making use of a lightweight coat of oil with a paper towel to assist the cement launch. Combine the cement as directed and pour into the bowls so they’re stuffed midway. Use the subsequent smaller measurement bowl to nest contained in the bigger bowl and gently push it right down to displace the cement so it types the planter partitions. Use the pebbles or rocks as weights to carry the smaller acrylic bowl down because it sits contained in the bigger bowl.

Step Two: Enable the cement to dry to the purpose the planter form is fashioned however not utterly strong. (In my case, I eliminated the within bowl after 45 minutes as soon as the cement had set, then used a chopstick to create a small gap within the backside whereas the cement was nonetheless tender.)

Step Three: Enable the cement planter bowl to dry one other 8-10 hours so it’s hardened then flip the underside bigger bowl the other way up on a tender floor in order that it releases from the acrylic bowl type.

Step 4 (non-compulsory): Use two mild coats of spray paint so as to add coloration to the underside of the planters, in my case I selected white. As soon as the spray paint is dry, fill the planter bowls with annuals or succulents and show on a tabletop.
