A great way to use up newspaper, unwanted gift wrap and packing paper, other than
for the cat! is
to turn it into biodegradable seedling pots, perfect for the spring.
Wooden paper pot making kit on Amazon.co.uk
| Using a wooden pot making kit or everyday
plastic cup, select your paper and fold in half lengthways, wrap it around
the body of the tool as many times as wanted leaving enough overhang at
the base to cover it when folded inwards. Secure the side seam with a piece of
paper tape or sticky tapeso as to help prevent
it from unravelling.
Create your pot base by folding the
overlap inwards and pressing down firmly onto a hard surface. Slide the
container off and fill with your prefered compost, seeds & label.
