tutorial for making a urn planter.

 Hello dear readers

Before I'll let you know who the winner is I'll show you how easy it is to make these planters with one of the most common household items.

Materials and tools:

Tools are what you see in the photo.

Materials: A small bottle of eye drops or vitamin D drops. Narrow trimmings or lace. 
Tucky glue, Acrylic paint of your choice. A narrow masking tape for covering the rough edges of the brim. 

I'm keeping the other parts of the bottle to see what can be done with them.  

To enable the trimming will stay firmly glued on plastic,  the brim has to be covered with masking tape.

A piece of lace is glued to the urn in the middle.  I wonder what it will look like after being painted. 
All three will be painted after the glue is completely dry.

I used materials that I had at hand for embellishing this part of the bottles. I ordered a silicone mold from Aliexpress. I hope to get it soon so I can make more versions.  The people at the Center were excited to see the first urn and started bringing all kinds and sizes of empty plastic medicine containers. I'm sure they can help me to decorate the bottles.

Not surprisingly, several comments were very close to the solution. The winner was the first with her comment. (Freethinker please contact me by email, at drorahed@gmail.com). 

Thank you for your much-appreciated and most welcomed comments.  

This is a list of participants in my second giveaway draw. The winner can choose one of the planters shown above after I make a slight change by gluing the plants inside the containers.

New Giveaway

Hello dear readers,

Making miniatures out of waste material is one of my favorite pastimes.  I realized that for a very long time, I didn't make a giveaway, so I'm using my Birthday (4, June) to make one.

This little flower planter urn in the photo below, is my latest "best out of waste." creation. The first follower of this blog to guess what the urn is made of will get it, if no one makes the right guess I'll just riffle it between all your comments, or make a new one for the riffle.  I hope you like it.   

This little pipe cleaner kitten tries to jump up to smell the flowers.....

The time for comments is from today until 15 June 2023.  

I wish you all, dear readers, a lovely creative week.
