Step 1: Indoor Planters- Made Through Paper Mashe

Materials Used

  • Empty round cardboard box with a lid like a cookie box.or Chips box
  • Empty used coke bottle with a lid.
  • Old newspapers
  • Fevicol
  • Acrylic Colours

Take an empty cardboard round box can be a cookie box or any round cardboard with a lid. cut the same from the centre in a rectangle shape. Then take an empty coke bottle and cut this also in a rectangle shape as featured in the picture. Make sure the lid is tightly closed.Insert the bottle into the box and close the lid.

Then take some old newspapers . Tear the same into small pieces and soak it in water for an hour. Squeeze the water and add fevicol to it. Make sure its not watery . Basically paper mashe.

Start pasting the crumbled and mashed newspaper bits onto the cardboard boxes. Once it is totally covered let it dry for a day or two in sunlight.

Once it is totally dried it will become pretty hard. Then u can give it a colour with acrylic. paints and again let it dry.

Lastly put some sand thru the rectangular hole in the coke bottle and plant a small plant. Hang it in your balcony and see the plant growing. U can hang it vertically or horizontally

<p>These are really fun. And the planter is biodegradable. So you can just plant the whole thing in the ground if you decide to transplant it. </p>
<p>Especially the Fevicol and the acrylic paint...</p>
Quite cool an awesome idea
