Wonderful DIY Rustic Cement Cloth Planter

VIEW IN GALLERYCement  Planter from old clothes

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.
