Cinder Block Planter

About: Bravoechonovember1's sisters' account

I was walking into a restaurant and I saw some cinder blocks with plants in them and I thought cool! So I decided to make some but colorful!

Step 1: Items Needed

you will need a cinder block, a piece of wood, a drill,a drill bit,some gorilla glue and spray paint of your choice

Step 2: Paint the Cinder Block

Paint the cinder block any color you want!

Step 3: Measure and Cut

Measure the board and subtract an half an inch each way then cut the board to those specifications

Step 4: Glue and Drill

Glue the board on to the cinder block with gorilla glue. Then drill around 5 holes on each side so water can drain out.

Step 5: Find Plants and Plant

Get some dirt and put it in your new pot.then plant any plant you want in your new flowerpot!
The reason the planter only has one flower is because I left on vacation the day I built this
