To make a stand for various vases and planters i use throughout the garden and on the patio, etc., I wanted some square stands as I like to elevate various planters while arranging them in the different areas that I use them in. These pieces are simply cast out of concrete in easy to make molds. My molds are about 5in. x 5in. and of two varying heights. To make intermediate size pieces, I use the larger mold, but only fill it half or three quarters full. These stands can then be used as is, or decorated as I have done to a few of them, as shown. I will do another instructable on how to decorate/paint these pieces.
