Upcycling plastic reduces the amount of waste that gets to the landfills. Using this waste plastic into something creative, not only helps the environment to reduce it's waste, but also helps us to be a little more creative in using our ideas to beautify our garden. So let's make a planter using foam sheet and a container of your choice.

Step 1:Rinse and clean any container of your choice.

Step 2: Paint the entire surface using Matt Chalk Paint.

Once painted let it dry completely.

Step 3: Take a foam sheet and draw lines using a marker as shown below.

Step 4: Draw lines as shown and cut it using a scissors.

Paint the edges as shown I have used brown Acrylic Paint.

I have used yellow and brown Acrylic Paint to give it a highlighted look.

And your DIY Planter Using Foam Sheet is READY!!!

This planter can be used in 3 ways;

  1. You can make a hole at the bottom and plant your favourite plant in the planter.
  2. Without making any hole to the planter, add water and some plant cuttings making it a propagating planter.
  3. Can directly add potted vase and let water drain in the planter itself.
