Finally, here is my second DIY recycled planter project…Old Book Planter
This one took me a little longer to complete because I had to go to the store to buy some supplies.
What you’ll need:
What I learned:
My husband had to help me with this one. It’s much easier if one person holds the book while the other one drills. Like they said over at cottage hill; you do have to take it slow. Ours didn’t come out as perfectly round and smooth as theirs, the (cheap) drill bit kept on getting snagged on the paper. But we smoothed out the rough edges with sandpaper as much as possible and I put in some moss to hide the mistakes.
With that said, It was well worth the trouble. I love how it came out and have already gotten some compliments.
