Step 1: Materials

- Paint
- Black
- Green
- Grey
- Red
- Blue
- White
- Brown

- Cardboard

- Any container
- Rising Star has a rimmed pot, Mon-Love has a verticle pot

- Cardboard + Rim of paper cup = base plate

- Cork + Sand = Soil

- Cork + Rocks = Stones

- Pencil + Elastic = Bamboo base

- Paper + Paint(+Mod Podge) = leaves

- Skewers/Wire + Paint = Twigs

Can be made out of anything, use anything you can find from foam to string, the list is of things that I used...

Tools : Scissors, Hot Glue Gun (melting plastic), etc. (unfinished)

Step 2: Containers

(This is for the type that I'm using)

1. Use a hot glue gun to melt the top of the container, remove the narrow piece

(Opt. Heat a baking pan upside-down on medium heat stove and melt the rims of the containers to get a smooth finish)

2. (View next step) Mix paint on the base plate, paint the containers and place containers on base plate -> Green, Black, Grey

3. Mod Podge two layers/coats

Note : I realized later on that Rising Star has a different pot than Mon-Love, to accomodate for this, I removed the container from the base plate and replaced it with a biodegradable pot (painted in the same colour)

Step 3: Base Plate

1. Trace out a circle

2. Cut out a rim (can be from a cup, like what I did)

3. Glue rim on base plate, using binder clips to keep in place while allowing it to dry

4. Mix paint on the base plate -> green, black, grey

5. Paint then mod podge two layers/coats

Step 4: Soil

1. Crumble cork

2. Mix sand with cork

3. Add paint and combine/mix -> black, brown

4. Let dry

5. Place in Mon-Love's pot

Note: At first I thought Rising Star's pot was also filled with soil so I ended up making too much fake soil, I could add it to the bottom of Rising Star's pot (so that it is not visible), but I decided to save it for a different project

Step 5: Stones

1. Cut cork into cubs and triangles

2. Paint black

3. Mod Podge over top


1. Gather or buy small rocks

2. Paint black

3. Mod Podge over top

    Will you be putting plants or seeds in the pots?

    No. I intend to use skewers and other materials to make the plant.
