I love summer! It’s time for outdoor and garden projects. I’ve always used Miracle-Gro in my gardens, so I love the fact they have some cute summer fun garden projects to do at The Gro Project. I’m also a Pinterest junkie, so I’m glad they have a page. It gives me tons of ideas. Lots of honey do projects coming up.
I’m going to be working on the Origami Garden since I already have a flourishing herb garden. I was going to do the G.Y.O.B. originally.
Don’t forget to go download your instructions (they have the templates), but I have also posted the basics here for you.
What you need (if you don’t have it already):
• Yarn or string
• Metal ring for hanging
• A small plant
• Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix
• Origami Instructions (page 2)
• Macramé Instructions (page 3)
• Miracle-Gro® Shake ‘n Feed® Plant Food
Step 1: Cut It
Use the origami template (page 2) to draw a polygon on a piece of cardboard,
then cut it out.
Step 2: Fold It
Fold your cardboard according to instructions. Glue the overlapping pieces together.
Step 3: Tie It
While the glue is drying, use the macramé instructions (page 3) to knot your hanger.
Step 4: Plant It
Fill a lightweight pot with potting mix, then transfer your plant to it. When your origami
planter is completely dry, nestle the potted plant in it.
Step 5: Green Thumbs Up!
Sit back and enjoy your masterpiece. To keep it looking lovely, you need to feed it.
