DIY Planter With Newspaper


To make a DIY planter all you need is an old box made of plastic or metal, some newspapers, and spray paints. To start with, make thin rolls of newspaper and use a mixture of glue and water to coat them to secure. Let them dry for 24 hours and then stick them on the metal box using a strong adhesive glue. Cover the entire box like this and then leave it to dry. Once the planter dries out, spray paint the newspaper rolls and add your plant to your best out of waste planter.  Place this planter in your verandah, living room(accent wall ideas for your room), or your study to enhance the appeal of the room.

Now, take the tissue roll, and cover it too, with a coloured sheet then stick it on the center of the CD. Next, cut the bottoms of the plastic bottles under adult supervision and cover the edges with ribbons.
