Through step-by-step instructions and photography, you’ll learn how to make a simple concrete succulent planter.
This is a great beginner project to get you started in working with concrete using household items for moulds.
Hester says, “I love succulents, mainly as they seem to be the only plants I am able to keep alive! My whole house is filled with these little fat specimens - I have most of them grouped together in big containers, but some are so pretty it’s nice to single them out into a small planter.”
