I have been thinking a lot about seed starting over the last few weeks… first it was the ice cube tray seed starters, then the egg cartons pulled out of the recycling bin, then I stumbled on this instructional video about creating seed starter pots from recycled news paper and just had to give it a try.
- Yesterday’s newspaper
- Straight edged drinking glass or glass jar
- nothing else
Step 1: Start out by wrapping the newspaper around the outside of the glass and folding the edges back inside of the glass.
Step 2: Remove the glass. You can use the bottom of the glass to force the folded over edges down to create the bottom of the pot.
I LOVED this project, these are addictive pots to make, I sat down to create just one of these to take photographs of and ended up making half a dozen just because it was so much fun I didn’t want to stop.
