Thought I'd try a fun little project. We had concrete so I only had to get pumpkin pails. I'm happy with the way the front 3 turned out although next time I will use a better concrete mix. These can be painted, stained, whatever. I don't think DH added enough water to the mix for the back 2 (I'll keep those). Letting them dry a bit more then will put the Mums in. I'm going to give one to my aunt & sister.
