HOW TO MAKE IT

 

Step 1. Get some old flower pots from the attic or out of the garden and clean them. Don’t worry if they're damaged - it fits well with this style trend. Paint the pot black with a brush, and spread wood glue on the bottom part of the pot.

Step 2. Grind up the charcoal and scatter it over the glue. Then also scatter a layer of ashes over the pot to give an amusing effect.

Step 3. Plant the plants in the pot. Bear in mind the size and shape of the plant before you start potting. Fill the potting soil to the right level, and make sure that the roots have some room to grow.
