Start by gathering the forms you plant to use as a mold for your planter. We recommend using buckets of varying sizes, like 3- and 5-gallon (11.36 L and 18.93 L) buckets. Use cooking spray to coat the inside of the large bucket and the outside of the small bucket.
Using bricks, stones, or sand, weigh down the small bucket and secure it with duct tape so it doesn’t rise.
Use a masonry bit to drill a hole in the side or bottom of the container for drainage.
