Succulent ‘Seat Cushion’: Hypertufa DIY Planter

I have to say that hypertufa ‘seat cushions’ are my all time favourite DIY upcycle project for the garden! You may recall the metal chair we upcylced for our back garden and turned into a planter (similar to the one shown below).

We showed how I cut off the metal spokes, but that’s as far as we got. We never did get around to showing you how to make the planter itself!

When we stumbled upon a discarded chair at the side of the road last week, hubs and I couldn’t wait to make another hypertufa planter! So now, we’re giving you the low-down on how you can make one too!

At first glance, we both thought the chair was cast iron, but on closer inspection it turned out to be a plastic imitation. Hubs and I loaded it into the car; luckily we grabbed it before anyone else did!
