  • Concrete mix
  • Water
  • 2 plastic bowls
  • Plastic spoon
  • Rubber or latex gloves
  • Rubber band
  • Big glass jar with a wide mouth
  • Sandpaper


Step 1

Get a glove and a glass, then insert the glove in the glass, and fold the cuff over the rim so it stays secure. In a bowl, add the concrete powder, then pour some water, and mix them together until well combined and smooth like a paste. Pour the cement mixture into the glove filling it until full, then remove the cuff around the rim, and tie them together with a rubber band.

Take the cement-filled glove, then position it in the desired shape as shown in the video, and leave it until the concrete has dried completely and solidified. Once dry, peel off the glove, then add the finishing touches by sanding and smoothing out all of the imperfections, and you’re done! You can display your planter now.
