DIY: glass sconce planter
So I picked up this glass sconce from the lighting section at the Restore shop by Habitat. I was thinking of how to recycle it and the shape reminded of clay pots. Scroll below to see how easily I turned it into a magnificent planter.
There was a big opening at the bottom where the light bulb would go in. I had to cover that with something. So I found a scrap chipboard from my studio bag and cut out the exact same round shape from it.
Before glueing it on, I had to remember to cut another small opening for the water to drain.Just like this! I used hot glue for this.
I also placed a draining plate at the bottom. It can be any kind of plate. I just happened to have clay ones floating around my garden.
Now its time to place the soil inside.
And the plant goes in next.
For final touches I placed some pebbles on top of the soil around the plant.
