Instructions:

How to make a DIY concrete look planter

 

Step 1: Use low-tack painter’s tape to mask off the areas of the planter you intend to give a concrete texture to. Using a soft paintbrush, paint selected areas of the papier mâché form with acrylic paint in the colour of your choice.

 

Step 2: Once the acrylic paint is completely dry, use more painter’s tape to protect the edges of the painted areas before applying the concrete paint. A little concrete paint overlapping on the acrylic painted areas is ok. Shake the concrete paint well before beginning. Using a stiff paintbrush, apply the LIGHT concrete paint to the planter.

 

Step 3: While the lighter undercoat of paint is still wet, dab the DARK concrete paint over it in selected areas to create depth and texture. Add interesting concrete-like discolourations by dipping a clean brush in water and pressing it against the surface while the concrete paint is still wet. Remove the painter’s tape.

 

Step 4: Once the planter is completely dry you can insert your plant and display it! Liven up your desk, windowsill or countertop with this lightweight DIY concrete alternative.
