Creative Crafting: DIY Hypertufa Planters


DIY Hypertufa Planters
by: Amanda Causey



Hypertufa (pronounced hyper-toofa) Planters are a fun way to display your plants & flowers in a natural and stylish way. This craft takes a total of 3 weeks to complete but requires a small amount of time from you. There are many steps so do not let them intimidate you from trying it out!





What You Will Need:
Perlite
Peat Moss
Concrete Mix
Plastic Containers
Rubber Gloves
Cooking Spray
Rubber Hammer
Plastic Garbage Bag
Water



 


I attempted this project twice, my first time was a crash and burn. Complete instructions as well as photos with each step are available here, as well as the crash & burn shots. If cured properly these planters are freeze proof and can be  left outside in the elements without damage. Next time I make these I will add texture, color and design. I spent a total of $25 on all of my materials, that averages out to about $2 per planter if you are mistake free. These would make great gifts for friends and family. Enjoy and if you make some send us a photo to share!
