It’s warming up, and that means it’s time to get outside! When you’re not mowing the lawn, grilling up some burgers, and sipping a cold one by the fire pit, you might look around and think that your yard could use an upgrade.
But what if the cookie cutter yard decor you find at a home improvement store just doesn’t cut it for you? What if you want to make something truly unique, by hand?
That’s where silicone molds can come in! I sell quite a few silicone mold that can be useful outside, so let’s take a quick look at all of the possibilities.
DIY Address Numbers
Everyone needs to display their address in a way that the mailman can’t mistake your house for a neighbors. So why not use these address number molds to make your address out of cement?
Mix up some cement and you’ll have blocking numbers that you can place on a porch, embed into your lawn, or place in your garden!
DIY Geometric Planter
Take these simple shapes and turn them into beautiful, decorative planters that can form a million different patterns!
I offer triangle silicone molds and diamond shaped silicone molds, and both work great for holding mint, catnip, lettuces, and other plants that like to grow in containers. They have a great industrial chic feel to them!
DIY Flower Pots
Coming in different shapes and sizes, making your own flower pots from cement or resin is fun and fulfilling, and even better it gives you unique garden decor that no one can ever match!
These are the perfect sizes for growing annual flowers that don’t mind being in small spaces.

DIY Succulent Planters
Don’t you just love succulents? They’re super popular now, and they’re so cute! Even if you live in an environment where you can’t grow them in the ground and keep them outside year round, they can benefit from being outside during the summer.
So pick up some of these succulent planter molds and you’ll have beautiful containers for your little pieces of the desert! They’re perfect for setting out on a deck’s railing or on a patio table.
DIY Outdoors Decor
Hopefully, you’ve found something in this post that will make your yard as lovely and welcoming as inside your home! You can use these molds to make so many different things, and there are ways to use them that I didn’t even mention.
