Concrete and geometric shapes are bang on trend at the moment and we love them! Bring the industrial feel of concrete and the soft fresh look of flowers into your home with this simple geometric concrete planter - it's easier than you think! Get your hands dirty and have a go, why not?! These also make great cost effective and stylish presents for your friends and family.

What you will need

Plastic mixing bowl

Quick set cement - we got ours from Homebase

Empty yoghurt pot

Fine sandpaper

Masking tape

Tester pot of paint in your choice of colour - we've used Jelly Bean from Wilkos

Paint brush

What to do

Grease the bowl with cooking oil

Mix up the cement following the instructions on the packet, making sure it's smooth and lump free

Put the bowl on a level surface and pour in just enough cement to cover the bottom of the mixing bowl

Place the yoghurt pot in the centre to create a hole for planting and fill the gap around the sides with the remaining cement

Leave the cement to set overnight

Once dry, remove the plastic bowl and pull out the yoghurt pot

Then sand off any rough edges

Using masking tape create a geometric shape of triangles

Paint the unmasked areas and leave to dry

Once dry, gently peel off the tape

Now you're ready to add the plant of your choice to the hole to create a beautiful table centrepiece for both inside and out, or a lovely gift!
