DIY Concrete Planters: Fabulous Projects that Bring Greenery Indoors

The more the urban jungle around us grows, more is the need among us to once again discover a connection with nature. Many homeowners are increasingly demanding interiors that are far greener and usher in nature’s freshness without taking away from modernity. This is where indoor plants neatly placed in the corners and those giant potted plants come in. They can be added to almost any interior without altering its style or color scheme. Not to forget all the fresh air that they provide in an otherwise polluted world. While we love the giant planters as much as the next guy, today we focus on DIY concrete planters.

DIY concrete planters are pretty simple to craft and even beginners can make them without much fuss. They do not take beyond a few hours on the weekend to craft and many of the projects that we feature in the list today do not require too many materials as well. From the minimal and those with geo charm to those that can also be placed outside, this is a look at the most fun DIY concrete planters around –

Concrete with a Dash of Metallic Glint

It is hard to create more of visual contrast than with materials that are as diverse as concrete and metallic accents! Concrete feels strong, durable and there is nothing pretentious about it. With a raw, industrial appeal, concrete finds space in pretty much any modern interior with ease. Give the small and stylish concrete planters a coat of color and some metallic dazzle with paint and you have a trendy little creation that is bound to stay relevant for many seasons ahead. Gold accents or a blue coating for the small planter that you have created goes a long way in making it chic without demanding a lot of effort.

This gives the planter a style of its own and allows you to add a planter to the interior or outdoors that is artsy as well. Concrete planters do not require much maintenance and they look great even when they are a little rough around the edges. This makes them a great option for beginner crafters as perfection is not mandatory in here!
