    Shayna,
    I love these pots! Did you put a drainage hole in the bottom?

      THANK YOU so much, Karin! I did not put a drainage hole in the bottom, but it would be very easy to drill a few holes! I hope that helps! 😀

    Love this project, I would like to tack this project someday. They look great!

  3. Sarah says:

    I love this idea and the concrete pumpkins! Just curious though, are these items so heavy from the concrete that they are hard to move around?!? Neat idea!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Sarah! They are a bit heavier than a normal pot, but not so heavy that they can’t be moved around. I like them, because the wind won’t blow them over… and we get wind! 😀

    Cool idea!
    I’m always in need of extra flower pots and this would be neat to try!

  5. So unique… these are really special! LOVE the snaps in them!

  6. The pots are amazing…..I love just about anything made out of concrete, and these have to be put on my list of things to try. I love, too, that you mixed the pots with the metal basket in your display. And those beautiful flowers were the perfect touch. The red and white flowers and green leaves really stand out against the color of the concrete. Another perfect diy project…you have such a creatice mind!

    Hi! Love the pots! Just wondering why you added the perlite and peat moss. Are those necessary ingredients? Thought I might try your idea using QuikCrete.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Hi Pam! I’m so happy you’re going to make your own concrete pots! The perlite and peat moss add the little “bubbles” or “gaps” in the concrete. That’s the texture you see. Also, the portland cement doesn’t have rock in it, the quikcrete does. The pots turn out a little bit smoother with the portland cement. 😀
      I hope yours turn out wonderful! 😀
