(ours is 1-inch diameter)
Spray Paint (optional)
Safety Face Mask
Outdoor Umbrella to fit your DIY base (
we used this umbrella
Be sure to wear a safety work mask when pouring the cement!
Cut the PVC pipe if you need to cut yours to size. You can find pre-cut PVC pipes at home improvement stores. We cut ours to 10.5 inches.
Add water to the flower pot.
Follow the instructions on the cement packaging. We slowly added dry cement to the water and used a stick to stir the cement until it reached the consistency and desired height level.
Use plastic wrap on the end of the PVC pipe and stick directly in the center of the pot through the cement.
Let the cement dry completely.
We waited a few days for ours to dry.
If desired, spray paint the flower pot to match your decor and let it dry. I used high-heat spray paint in black.
Place the outdoor umbrella inside the PVC pipe.
Attach the umbrella to the stand by drilling a screw into the PVC pipe and the umbrella pole. If you need to remove the umbrella, simply unscrew the screw,
