Ok this has got to be the easiest DIY I have ever done! You don’t need many supplies and the only difficult thing for me was removing the cap off the spray can! Here’s an easy way to DIY faux stone planters!
There are so many beautiful concrete and stone planters that I love, but I just don’t love the prices. I was inspired by these planters from Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Rejuvenation.

So instead, here’s what I did to get the look for less.
I went on a hunt to find planters that were budget friendly. Most of the planters that cost less are usually made of resin.
I found these planters at the store At Home and love the shape and size. The color wasn’t ideal and I wanted them to look like stone planters. .
Instead of using Stucco patch or mixing concrete to place all over the planter, I grabbed this Krylon Stone Course Texture spray.
This spray is the star of the show! I did something similar to a lamp using the fine texture spray and it turned out adorable!
One step DIY
All you have to do is spray your item and that’s it! I didn’t sand or do anything to the planter. All I did was place the two planters on a cardboard box and sprayed away.
Look at that color and texture!
I have yet to learn how to remove the caps from the cans. I believe you use a screw driver, I didn’t know that before I got into a fight with the cap.
You can spray and seal your planters with a polycrylic afterwards if you’d like. I didn’t since the planters will remain on a covered porch.
And there you have it, the easiest DIY faux stone planters!
If you’re not into doing the work of spraying planters, these are some great planter options you can purchase all under $50.
