Concrete Pumpkin Planter - Candy Buckets

Make a concrete pumpkin planter for your garden this fall!

Are your kids too old for trick-or-treating this coming Halloween season? Well, keep their old pumpkin candy buckets and turn them into DIY concrete pumpkin planters!

DIY Concrete Pumpkin Planter

This DIY project is very easy to make, even to those who do not consider themselves crafty.

It’s also inexpensive since you would only need one bag of concrete mix. The other materials required can be items you have but no longer really use.

If you have some extra paint in your workshop, you can use them to paint your concrete pumpkin planter. Painting their cut out face would be more visible especially from afar.

Your garden will have a long-lasting decor in these cute concrete pumpkin planters. And you can enjoy these year after year – yes even when it’s not Halloween!

Is this going to be your next project?
