Introduction: DIY Recycled Mini Greenhouse

About: Photography, video, DIY, animals, nature.

This is a great way to grow your plants and veggies at home and it's fun for kids to do to.

I wanted to recycle and repurpose materials so I used what I had at home and you can do the same so it's a totally low budget project.

Watch the video for a step by step procedure.


Materials you'll need:

- a plastic box

- wire

- straws - bad for the environment, but good for this project (repurpose)

- rope or shoe laces

- anti insects net or some other fabric that absorbs sunlight but doesn't have the negative effects that plastic has

- cardboard box

- soil and seeds

Step 1: Procedure


Drill holes on the sides of the plastic box, put the wires through the holes - this is the basic construction.

Drill a few holes on the bottom of the box for the excess water that will come out during watering.

Make a construction with the wires and straws.

Put the sun-absorbing fabric on your construction. Tighten it to the box using rope but only on one side, on the other side, make a little door - see what I mean in the video.

Put the soil in the box and plant the seeds.

Put your mini greenhouse on a cardboard box so it absorbs excess water.

Hope you enjoy and have fun making it.
