These DIY cement pots from Zana are clever, easy to make, and good for gifting. In other words: they're a pretty ideal DIY project. Make a few for your own place, or as a present for any occasion from Valentine's Day to a friend's birthday.
All you need to make one is a plastic pot, cooking spray, sand, cement, and pearlite. The polka dots are sweet, but the pots would look equally great with stripes, lettering, or abstract patterns.
