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

- sandpaper

- 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
