Just some imagination, some cement mix and 48 hours will yield some beautiful and inexpensive results.
First, prepare a sizeable container for mixing the cement in. You will need cement and pine sand at a 1 to 3 ratio, and some water. Start by mixing the cement and the sand together, then slowly add the water. The resulting consistency should be something like sour cream.
Next, soak some thick towels in the mix, since thinner fabrics won’t absorb as necessary, turning out too fragile.
Hang the soaked fabric on an overturned bucket covered in plastic.
Leave to dry for up to 48 hours.
When fully dried, you will have some very unique flowerpots.
