I’ve been playing around recently with casting concrete and some friends of mine were getting married so I thought I’d take a stab at making a gift for them. There are tons of great Instructables and guides out there already specifically for making concrete planters so be sure to check out some of the other ones.

The idea with this planter is that you pour water into the section holding the rocks and a hidden channel allows the plant to pull water from the reservoir as needed. That’s the theory anyway, I’ll have to wait and ask my friends as to whether or not this actually works out.

The actual materials cost is pretty low and it doesn’t require many tools so even starting from scratch wouldn’t be too bad. The project only uses a small percentage of the concrete and foam board so these can be reused to make multiples or can be saved for other projects. Here’s the price breakdown for materials:

50 lb. Fast-Setting Concrete Mix from Home Depot – $4.97 FOAMULAR 1 in. x 2 ft. x 2 ft. R-5 Insulation Sheathing from Home Depot $5.98 Plastic bowl from Dollar Tree – $1.00 Oval-shaped plastic storage container from Dollar Tree – $1.00 Decorative rocks from Dollar Tree or free if you head on down to the closest creek/river – $1.00

That brings the total to less than $15.00 and it’s even less if you only consider what was actually used.
