Handmade Flower Pots

Once I spent a whole summer making handmade paper. I love the organic texture. Now I've found a way to make pots that look handmade without all of the work. Plus they cost about 9 cents each. How great is that?

Materials
fiber pots
lace
cording
white glue
Pam kitchen spray
gesso
acrylic paints

Tools
blender or food processor
mold
paint brush


Tear one of the pots into dime sized pieces. Place them in hot water and let sit for a 1/2 hour or so. Place the mixture in the blender, add a squirt of white glue and whirl away. If using a processor, first drain, then place in the processor, whirl, then add a bit of water and glue.

Place paper towels in a strainer and drain the paper mixture. Gather the paper towel and squeeze out as much of the water as you can. Spray your mold with kitchen spray. I used a silicone ice tray but you can use candy molds which are readily available at Michaels. Press the paper mixture into the molds; we are looking for a depth of about 1/8 inch or less. Allow to set up overnight. Unmold the next day. They won't be dry yet so stick them on a piece of waxed paper and place them in a very low oven for 15 minutes or so.


When the molded object is dry, glue it to the front of the pot. Glue lace around the top, Add cording to the top and bottom.

Saturate some cording with white glue. Twist two lengths together if necessary. Hold for a few minutes to set the twist. Make a gentle curve and place it on waxed paper. Set in a low oven until dry. Cut off the ends and glue the handle to the top of the pot. Allow to dry.

Coat the pot in gesso and allow to dry. A hair dryer will speed things up if you are as impatient as I am.

I painted the pot, embellishments and all, with my base color, blue. When dry, I used a dry brush and lightly hit the lace and cording with green paint. Another dry brush of yellow was used on the flower.

Normally I use brown shoe polish to antique things but this time I watered down white acrylic paint and brushed it all over my pot which I think alludes to the lime that forms on pots.

Plant flowers in them. Place them at each place setting a lovely, inexpensive favor. Great for a bridesmaid luncheon.
