Yes, you read it right. Plants will only consume some water and manure and sunlight, of course. Plus, plants are a cost-effective and affordable solution for our decor problems. You can go ahead and add as many plants as possible.

Let's check out how to make a DIY planter.

To make a DIY planter, all you need is an old earthen pot with a wide opening. This also can be a biryani utensil that you get on ordering a biryani online. Then you will be needing an unused cloth, could be an old t-shirt. A fevicol bottle, Plaster of Paris, a thick brush, paints, mud, and a small plant.

Dip And Paste

First, take the earthen pot and cover it with fevicol adhesive glue making sure that no portion of the pot is left. Then mix the Plaster of Paris with water and make a pourable paste.  Dip the t-shirt inside the paste and then take it out. Paste the cloth over the outer surface of the pot making crumples and patterns with it.  Now just let it dry for 24 hours.

After 24 Hours Of Wait

After, a complete day of drying, the pot could still be a little wet on the inside. So, if you're not in a hurry, then let it dry for some more time.  Once it totally dries out, you will notice the cloth crumples have become solid and make the pot look aesthetically appealing.
