You will need to mix equal
parts of cement, perlite and
peat moss with water until you
get a consistency of dry peanut butter.
Spray the inside of the larger pot with pam,and spray the outside of the smaller pot,
put some mix on the bottom of the larger pot and set the smaller pot onto the mix, with a trowel, fill all around the smaller pot until it is level with the top. Allow this to stand several hours or overnight to firm up and then unmold carefully. Allow the unmolded form to dry throughly. Drill drainage holes in the bottom before the form is too hard. Once the form is dry, you can paint it with Patio outdoor paints to any design and color you like.
