Now this something funny and quite original. You don’t see many of these in peoples gardens, but that’s the coolest thing about this DIY project!
I’m very excited to share my latest DIY. I made these really cool concrete planter hands. Use them as planters or toss your keys or spare change into them. I thought these were so much fun. Plus, I’ve been really wanting to try making something with concrete. So this seemed like the perfect place to start.
Now, while making these DIY concrete hands was super easy, I have to admit I started out with a major fail. So I’ll start by telling you a little about how you can avoid making the same mistakes. My biggest lesson learned here is that not all concrete is made equal. I picked up the smallest bag of concrete I could find at Home Depot. Their smallest bag was 50 lbs. But it was only $5 so no big deal. I was all ready to get started.
This is a great way to spend some time outside and make something beautiful for your garden. Make a unique DIY cement hand plant container for your plants! It’s a terrific way to spice up your garden and make it extraordinary. More important, you shouldn’t spend a lot money on garden ideas.
The materials needed are:
– plastic gloves
– trowel to mix & scoop the cement
