Repurposed Plastic Plant Pots

  Primary | Environment | Views: 593

You will Need:

  • Plastic container, for example a milk carton, juice bottle, drinks bottle…whatever you can find and reuse!
  • Soil for your plant to live in.
  • A plant that you’ll take care of.
  • Paint and brushes

What to Do:

  1. Make sure to clean your plastic before using it.
  2. Cut your container to ensure there is space to put the soil and your plant, be careful and ask for adult help when cutting as plastic can be quite sharp.
  3. Get decorating! Decorate however you like – what did we choose in the video?
  4. Add soil ready for a plant to be added.
  5. Place your new pot either inside/outside like your plant needs and continue to take care of it and enjoy!
