Making Planter Pots from Newspaper


I used a read “Waimea Weekly” and cut it in half for a planter pot of 65mm diameter. Don’t use shiny/glossy paper.


Fold the newspaper in half.


Use a jar of the size of planter pot you need.


Fold the overlapping newspaper into the jar.

Finished pot, to secure the bottom just press down the scrunched up paper by hand or a smaller jar.

The loose ends can be secured with a staple.
