Con­crete isn’t just for side­walks, build­ings, and curbs—the pos­si­bil­i­ties for this easy to mix and quick to set mate­r­ial are prac­ti­cally end­less. If you haven’t worked with con­crete before, we have the per­fect project to get you started. You can eas­ily make this super fab con­crete vase in less than 30 minutes.

Let’s get started!

DIY Concrete Vases: List of Materials


  • Con­crete mix (avail­able at your local hard­ware store)
  • Plas­tic bot­tles, large and small
  • Pli­ers
  • Scis­sors
  • Marker
steps for creating DIY concrete vases


  1. Using a marker, trace a line around the larger bot­tle where you want it to be cut.
  2. Cut around the line.
  3. Repeat steps one and two with the smaller bottle.
  4. Mix the con­crete and fill the larger bot­tle, roughly half full.
  5. Push the smaller bot­tle into the con­crete mix until it almost reaches the top.
  6. Let the con­crete set for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove the outer plas­tic bot­tle. This can be a bit of a pain if your bot­tle is thick. I used scis­sors to cut into the edge and then used pli­ers to pull off the plastic.
  8. Cut them rim of the inner plas­tic bot­tle to the same height and then the concrete.
  9. Fill with water and add flowers.
