Have you all heard of this stuff called Oly*Fun? It's a great new material that is a cross between paper and fabric. The best part... it's water-resistant. AWESOME!!!!
I've been thinking about this great material and trying to decide on a project that not only optimizes the fun colors but I could use outside. That's when I thought, hey how about a pot pinata.
Well then after telling some friends that name they were like... umm, that sounds like a different kind of pot. Ooops. Nope, not what I was talking about, so now we're calling this little lady DIY Piñata Planters. 🙂
Here's how you make them.
- Hot Glue
- Terracotta Pot
How To Make a Piñata Planter
Cut a one-inch piece off each of your Oly-fun sheets.
Fold the one-inch piece in half longways.
Then fold in half again and again till you have it to a small size approximately one inch long.
Make a few cuts halfway through the width of the Oly-fun pieces that are folded up to create fringe.
Do the same for each color of the Oly-fun.
Add hot glue to the uncut part of the fringe and glue it to the planter.
Start from the bottom and work your way up.
Glue each piece till you make it to the top.
Add plant and viola!
*Note: Make sure there are drainage holes in your flower pots.
