Can’t keep a plant alive? Let it take care of itself with this simple DIY self-watering planter…

Let’s face it, not all of us are blessed with a green thumb. Remembering to keep ourselves hydrated is work enough, so trying to remember to water the plants may just be a bridge too far for some. That’s where a self-watering vase comes to the rescue! Not only is this one super chic, it’s also handy for when you’re going away for the weekend and don’t want to come home to more dead plants.

In this video you’ll learn how to cast the concrete form and feed through the water supply, but don’t fret about the machinery – just get your local hardware store to cut all the wood pieces to size and then assemble it at home.
