Products I {Heart}: Concrete Planters

For Christmas last year, my oldest son Alex (who had just turned 13) made me a special surprise. He came across a video on Instagram that showed how to make your own concrete planters. Knowing my love of plants, he took the video to my husband and said, “I want to make those for Mom.”

About a week before Christmas, both my husband and son spent a Saturday afternoon, cooped up in the basement; weird smells streamed from under the closed door. I was suspicious, but was told I wasn’t allowed to go see what was going on…that Alex was making me a present and I had to roll with it. (I am NOT a flexible, ”roll-with-it” kind of girl…but I sucked it up and endured.)

On Christmas morning, Alex proudly handed me a gift bag that was strangely heavy. I couldn’t figure out what could possibly be inside! When I parted the tissue paper, I found three awesome concrete planters inside, each one decorated with a unique design painted on with spray paint (hence the mysterious smell). I am NOT a crier, but I almost burst into tears I was so incredibly touched!

Concrete planters are majorly on trend right now and add a unique touch to any décor. I have seen a lot of the awesome planters online lately and, while none of them will ever be as special or amazing as the ones made for me by my Alex (insert alllllll the heart eyes), I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

I have yet to experiment with making concrete planters myself, but I hope that one day soon, I will have the time – and courage – to give it a try! (And, if I do, you can be sure I will have pictures to show you of my adventure!)
