    8 in x 8 in (20.32 cm x 20.32 cm) concrete blocks

    Spray paint
    Painter’s tape

    Air-dry clay




    1. Use the painter’s tape to mark out the opposing spaces of where you’d like to paint.

    2. In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the exposed areas of the block. Layer the paint to create color block designs.

    4. Cover the bottom of the concrete block core with air-dry clay. Let it dry for at least 24 hours.

    5. Fill the rest of the core with sand or dirt and plant succulents as desired.
