Mini Flower Pot








Hello everyone, I hope all enjoyed their weekend. I know I did because I had it off work :).

Today I am showing you a small flower pot I made and put a tiny off spring of a cactus I have that fell off into it. This will be perfect because you don't water cactus like you do normal plants.

I pressed paper pulp into a small pot I had and let it dry. I then coated the outside with a layer of glue to make it stronger. Then made a bow out of a paper strip and added a small gem to it then added cactus potting soil to it and planted my mini cactus. It is so cute and just the right size for propaganding an off shoot.

You will need:
Blender
paper, I used junk mail
water
small planter
glue
strip of paper
gem

Please check out the Arnold Grummer paper making store here for all your hand made paper products you need to get started making your own paper. Have fun!!

  2. So cute, but Im thinking could you use a plastic container for the mold (paper pulp pressed on outside?) then keep the container inside (cut down a little) for the water?... I love the idea of mini pots.
