Introduction: Transformation of a Gherkin Jar Into a Slate Flowerpot
Here I go for my first instructor's notebook
Step 1: Step 1: Materials Required
- jar of gherkins or other
- have access to a 3d printer
- a small pot (here a pot of modeling clay)
- chalkboard paint
- a pretty plant
Step 2: Step 2: Cleaning
First of all a good cleaning is necessary, we remove the labels. What a joy to have a clean jar
Step 3: Step 3: Printing and Sanding Rim
Then I printed a rim that covers the part to be screwed, then it can be made of any material or color, it's up to the maker's choice.
The longest is the sanding...
Step 4: Step 4: the Smaller Pot
I take the smaller pot. This one will contain the soil of the plant.
I drill small holes so that the water in the jar can feed the plant.
I glue this jar on the rim printed in 3d
Step 5: Step 5: Paint in Black
For the painting, I chose a slate black paint that allows to write on it with chalk.
Step 6: Step 6: Finish
I assemble the whole, a small plant and a small drawing. And here you can admire your work
