There is a plastic colander in every home. We offer you a great option for its application. Suitable for plants with long branches that go down.
What is required
- plastic colander in 3 sizes;
- plastic bowl;
- plastic bag;
- Master OK;
- 3 iron pipes of different lengths;
- covering primer white;
- paint of 3 colors;
Tie three pieces of twine in the middle to make six tentacles. Place the bunch in the middle of the colander. Cover it on top with a piece of chintz.
Place the cut bag around the outside of the plastic bowl. Place in the middle of a colander, bottom up.
Prepare the cement mix. Use a trowel to spread the cement around the cup, holding it so it doesn't move. Then fill the entire colander whole by covering the bowl.
Tie the fabric in two knots in the middle. Tie the twine cords.
Repeat with the smaller colander.
Let the cement set for a few hours. Untie the fabric and twine and center the three pieces of the iron pipe. To keep them stable, add some cement to the surface. Dampen the cement around the pipes with water. Tie the fabric and twine around them.
Leave to dry overnight. In the morning, fill the iron pipes with cement. Let it dry.
Remove the structures from the colander and place them on the resulting leg. Untie the fabric and twine and remove. Take out the plastic bowl.
Cover the entire structure with a primer. It is better to start with the legs and the bottom surface of the cap.
Color them in your chosen colors.
All is ready. You now have three pot holders.
