I really like this idea, because it's so much cheaper than when you buy those in store.

And you can decorate them the way you want! :)

But can they handle long-living plants?

i made these so they could last it really depends on how many layers of paper you add but it should last for a long time as long as you dont over water plus the paint has latex so it adds extra water proofing
