love these concrete containers....can't wait to start on the first one!
One Question,though: I can't stand the thought of cutting up all those plastic buckets and trashing them/doesn't seem very earth friendly...is there a way to seal them for use again or can I use the plastic pots that small trees and rosebushes come in? Those have drainage holes so how can I plug those up before use?
Thanks for such an easy and beautiful project!

Lini, that's a tough one! We suggest using lots of non-stick spray and a pot with a tapered shape so that it slides out more easily. You won't have to worry about plugging drainage holes because the bottom of the planter will not be visible. However, you can try putting a piece of duct tape over it before pouring the concrete into the mold. Good luck!
