You will need:
- An Old Guitar
- Spray Paint
- Mesh Bag
- Potting Soil
Step 1: PREPPING THE GUITAR
Make sure to keep the screws organized if you're not familiar with a guitar's anatomy.
Take away the back of the guitar. Mine was already cracked and partly detached so it just slipped a knife all around and it came right off. If not just use a saw.
Tape up any bits that you couldn't take off but don't want painted.
Step 2: PAINTING
Spray thin layers of paint on the surface. Let dry properly.
When it is completely dry, build it back up. This is where keeping your screws organized helps.
Step 3: PLANTING
Using solid string fix the mesh bag to the guitar by passing string through the holes in the wood.
Fill the bag with potting soil. Press the bag to keep the shape, you don't want it to be thicker than the guitar. Compress the soil in the bag.
Plant your plants in the bag and guide them through the hole. As they grow keep on guiding them so they grow in the right direction.
Step 4: HANG IT UP
Its also nice just leaning against the wall.
Hope you enjoy your decorative guitar planter!
