Put pulp of newspapers on any mould(bottle),as you want shape of your pot

I shape it like this as shown in images

put your pot in sun ,it will take 2 days to completely hard ( for use).
you may colour it,..

Step 4: Reuse Plastic Bottles

Things You Will Need :

1)Knife to cut tops off.
2)Screwdriver( to make hole in bottle)

how to start a”Cutting Bottle”

1.  Hold one plastic bottle on its side. Cut a large, rectangular opening along the bottle’s side by puncturing the plastic with the tip of a craft knife, twisting the knife to enlarge the hole and using scissors to finish the job
2.  Poke one or two more holes along the side of the bottle that doesn’t have the rectangular opening. That hole, or those holes, will allow water to drain from the bottle.
3.  cut bottles from upper side ,it will work better

I could plant things in a shape formed by the bottle frame and plant in the bottles as well.
Lots of things I thought would work didn’t and my first go around was not 100% satisfying, but I got it to work the next time around.

it will work much better for planting

Step 7: Believe it or not, a newspaper is not just made for recycling

Picture of Believe it or not, a newspaper is not just made for recycling

Believe it or not, a newspaper is not just made for recycling. Some people read the newspaper and some people get creative and use it for lots of different things. So whether you subscribe to the newspaper or get a local newspaper thrown in your yard (whether you want it or not) don’t just put it in the recycle bin. Make use of it first in any or all of the ways below.

2.Garden. Newspaper can be used in your garden to discourage weed growth and helps keep moisture around plants. Shred it and spread it out. Then cover it with compost mixture. Avoid adding the glossy advertisement sections, as it can contain harmful chemicals not good for your garden.

3.Protect plants. You can also protect your plants by using newspaper to cover them in extreme cold weather or by using wet damp newspaper to transplant new plants.

4. Crafts. Crafts with newspaper tend to be easy. Some crafts may take time to complete, but they are all fun especially for the kids. Examples of crafts that can be made with newspaper are: Piñatas, wreaths, paper hats, kites, puppets, dolls, and even new paper can be made with newspaper.
