There are many ways to make this but today we are going to show you the best ones. The first one is making concrete planters with plastic pots and the other one is using wooden casts.
1) Making Concrete Planters Using Plastic Pots
Using plastic pots is simpler and easier than using wooden casts. This is because you won’t need to shape the mold first since the planters will have the exact shape of your pots. First you need two pastic pots in different sizes, one of them has to be larger than the other one. Choose well the biggest pot as it will give the outside shape for your planter.

After that you will need a bit of cement and some water to prepare the concrete . After preparing it, take the larger pot and put a bit of grout to inside it.The amount of concrete should be enough to cover the bottom.You will determine the depth of the planter with this amount.
Then put the smaller pot inside the larger one,pressing it on the concrete carefully right in the middle. Now, you need to pour the rest of concrete between the two pots until you fill all the space. Wait for some hours until the it gets dry and remove the pots from the concrete carefully. Finally, your concrete planteris ready.As you see in the pictures there are some different shaped planters that you can make using pots you have at home.

This second way is a bit more exhausting than the previous one but the final product will look more professional and well done. First of all, you will need some wooden sheets to create the model of your planter.You can prepare it by yourself at home or ask to acarpenter to prepare one for you.One of them should be larger than the other one and, while you are preparing the wooden sheets, try to make the smaller mold narrower, this will make it easier to be removed from the concrete after you finish the work.
