Cement is having a serious moment right now. Who knew something so basic could be so trendy? It’s right in line with the wave of minimalism and raw materials. Personally, I adore the way cement looks with natural materials, like wood and leather. So, in true Plant Lady fashion, I came up with some DIY planter ideas using suede lace embellishments. It creates the perfect home for the awesome faux succulents at Darice. Here’s how to make it yourself.
- Darice Suede Lace in Chocolate Brown, Black and Rust
- Geometric Darice Cement Planter
- Darice All-Purpose Scissors
- Darice Glue Gun
Step 5. To keep everything in place, add hot glue along the length of the braid. A few drops is more than enough. Along the top edge of the planter, secure the braid with a little more glue. One strand will have to be glued on top of the others.
DIY planter ideas using braided suede really bring in texture and dimension. Not crazy about the combination of colors? Feel free to stick to one kind. The braids will look super cool, even if you just used black or brown.
