Book Page Planter

Pin It

I signed up to take part in a fun challenge a while back at Crafting in the Rain. Steph gives you a secret ingredient to work with and you make something from that. This month's secret ingredient was book pages.

I decided to make a planter since it is the time of year where I'm wanting to plant flowers. I just stuck a plant I had in the planter for the picture. I will change it out with flowers later.

The supplies you need to make the planter are....
  • An old book
  • Chalkboard or any other paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brushes
  • Sealer
  • Clay pot

To Begin start painting on your Mod Podge. I used an old credit card to help press down the pages.

Continue adding pages and strips of pages around the entire pot. Trim off the book pages around the bottom of the pot.

Add Mod Podge over the top of the book pages and when dry spray with a sealer. (I still need to do this step). Paint on your chalkboard paint. If you aren't using chalkboard paint the paint first then seal the pot.

Enjoy your new Book Page Planter!

Thanks Steph for letting me be a part of this month's challenge, it was fun!!!

Make sure to check out the parties I link to.

I have about five of these planters in my house and would love to do something similar to them. Way more attractive this way. Thanks for sharing.
