She Soaks A Towel In Concrete Slush. But The Interesting Part Is When She Flips It Over…

Working with concrete can sometimes create sticky situations, and well known DIY master Cat at The Rustic Willow acknowledges that. The cook, crafter, traveler, and volunteer ups the ante with this towel-turned-into-planter project. You’re going to love it!

The project requires five simple ingredients: a half bag of Quikrete, a sizable/sturdy mixing stick, some water, two 5-gallon buckets, a towel, and a little bit of patience. (You must wait 24 to 48 hours for it to dry, depending on where you live.)

Here’s an overview:

After you’ve got your ingredients and gloves on, you are going for a soupy-type concrete mixture so you can dunk the towel — repeatedly.

You want to ensure that every bit of the towel is covered in concrete mix. That is crucial. The next step is to let the towel dry.

Don’t want to take up porch space with a pretty big planter? You can always try crafting a Hanging Planter Kit made out of macrame — two or three of these bright colors can really liven up your indoor or outdoor space!

Or if you love the cement aesthetic but favor a more classic container, why not craft these smaller cement planters made from an old orange juice container? (And if you have plenty of space, mix and match all three types.)
