You will need:

  • 2 Livistona palms

  • A sizeable, strong bag

  • Pinking shears/scissors

  • Binbag 

  • Wide (paper) adhesive tape

  • Ecoline in various colours: green, blue and yellow

  • 1 loose Livistona leaf

How to make it:   

Sep 1

Cut the bag to size: the edge should be slightly higher than the height of the pot.  

Step 2

Place the Livistona leaf on the bag and paint around it, moving it a little each time. The more water you use, the more exciting the effect. The colours can run into one another. Allow to dry thoroughly before painting the back.  

Step 3

Stick the binbag onto the inside, well below the top edge, and place the plants in your beautiful tropical pot. It's one of a kind - a brand-new Old Master!
