DIY Burlap Bag Shaped Concrete Planters

This is a simple project with beautiful results.

Every now and then, it’s nice to come up with something to add an element of interest in a space. Gardens, for example, are wonderful places to put up quirky, exciting pieces. Whether you decide to choose a piece of furniture, a water feature, or trinkets, even the little things go a long way.

I have an aunt who’s constantly at work in her garden. When she’s unreachable by phone, we can easily find her in her favourite spot – planting, replanting, moving pots. For her birthday, we wanted to give her something that will reflect the garden-loving person that she is.
