so cool I see old jello molds at garage sells love this idea for the umbrella surround use as a planter, punch some drainage holes in the Jell-O mold. Since the molds are so shallow, gravel is not needed to for the base. Just fill the mold with potting soil and Spreads gravel on top of the soil. the plants will need watering daily.
DIY shade canopy. Using planters, fence posts, buckets, quick Crete, grommet kit and hooks. We needed more shade so decided to make this. Still need some plants in our pots but I'm super happy with the results! Better then an umbrella. Back yard project. We found shade sails on Amazon, which was much easier then making my own which I originally had done.
