Cinder Block Planter

This idea is brilliant! I love the idea of using recycled materials to make modern, interesting, and functional pieces. Of course, they don't have to be recycled, you can buy them new at a hardware store if you don't have some lying around.

Wouldn't it be cool to stray paint one or a few of them a bright color? That sure would add a nice pop of color. I think I would do orange or hot pink!


  1. What do you put on the bottom to keep dirt from falling out?

  2. Here is an excerpt from the original post: "In fact in order to make bottoms for the blocks that are sticking forward, we cut pieces of cinder block to fit the inside and then liquid nailed them in."

    Hope that helps! :)
