Oblivion Plant



About: I always liked making stuff and when my grandfather showed me Instructables I became an addict. I don't have any degrees yet but I'm working on my aeronautics engineering degree :-P

Last month I saw on tv a new Tom Cruise's movie called Oblivion. If you watched it too I suppose you noticed the scene which in he waters a plant in a grenade launcher shell. I immediately thought I must make one and I remembered that I found a similar shell when I was hiking in the desert.
I used to do so and here is how.

Step 1: Materials

- Granade launcher shell. used one.. (of course).
- a plant
- Drill
- Rope

Step 2: Adjusting

I want to make my Oblivion plant a hanged one so I used a drill to drill two holes in the top of the shell like in the photo and threaded the rope through, then tied the ends of it to prevent it getting out. The length of rope you leave between the two holes is up to you.
I left around two meters.

Step 3: Planting

now it's time to fill the shell with dirt and plant your plant. If you made the flowerpot hanged like I did it would be cool to plant a climbing seedling so it would climb the rope.
Hope you guys enjoyed this guide please comment like and vote :-)

Step 4: That's It
