Create A Large Custom Planter With TikTok’s Clever DIY
TikTokker @Sandras.home.life posted an easy tutorial on how she made her custom planter. First, purchase two large planters like these from Home Depot. You want to make sure the plastic is thick and durable, and that its top is just as sturdy as its base so that it can be inverted. Resin and think plastic are good materials for this, as they are durable and tend to be inexpensive. Additionally, you’ll need Liquid Nails construction adhesive, caulk or joint compound, and plastic-compatible paint. Think about how you want the planter to look when you’re finished, whether you want it to be imposing and bold or a more casual, earthy style. Then, plan your colors or other embellishments around that vision.
Place one pot upside down and apply the adhesive to the bottom, then affix the bottom of the other pot onto it, creating a makeshift hourglass shape. Make sure the two ends are aligned and allow the adhesive to dry, then apply the caulk to the seam between the two and wipe away the excess, so it dries as a flush, seamless surface. Once this is dried, you can paint it in warm neutrals or bold jewel tones as you like. You can even stencil on patterns or paint a beautiful ombré finish if that’s your cup of tea. Let your imagination run wild and create your own custom planters that will bring new life to your space.
