Here is a fun easy project for everyone — Creat a unique rustic cloth planter for your front porch, lanai or just about anywhere. Purchase and organize all supplies prior to starting the pot-making process since the cement needs to be worked with quickly to prevent it from drying before you are finished. Make sure to wear old clothes, lay out a drop cloth, and work in a well-ventilated area as the project can get messy.

Here is the video tutorial from thehypertufagardener: Making the Draped Hypertufa Planter!

    I tried to make these cement cloth pots but they didn’t come out like I wanted. Tried to fix them but to no avail. Stacked them in preparation of tossing them out and found a whole new way to show off and share them in a very different way. Wish I could show pictures. They are gorgeous.
