We all love indoor plants. Why not decorate the vases, planters also according to the color palette of our interiors?

Craft #1: Materials Required:

Cracked earthen pot; Old cotton cloth; any adhesive; water; fabric pearl colors; round brush;

Method

  1. Take the cotton cloth. Cut out small pieces of this cloth in different sizes and shapes.
  2. Now take a bowl and put some adhesive onto it. Add a little water and mix thoroughly so that it acquires the consistency of gum. Dip these cloth pieces into this mixture.
  3. Now, take them out from the bowl one by one and remove a little adhesive from the cloth pieces by pressing the cloth with your hands.
  4. Then, take the cracked earthen pot and go on placing these cloth pieces (very close to each other) on the pot in any direction you like.
  5. The cloth will get pasted (fixed) on the pot. Let them dry for some time. When they are completely dry, paint them with fabric or pearl colors with a brush.
  6. Let them dry. You can paste flowers, beads, stars, pearls etc.,, on the painted cloth to make the pot more beautiful.

Craft #2: Materials Required:

One plain small ceramic pot; Discarded wax candles; Transparent Varnish Paint; Brushes; Items for decoration; Metallic Paint; Ceramic paint

Method

  1. First ensure that the vase is clean.
  2. Add a coat of ceramic paint to the vase.
  3. When the paint dries off, melt the wax and start dripping the molten wax on the vase giving it dimension. You could tip the vase and spoon out the molten wax and drip it in the direction you want,
  4. Leave to cool. When wax has cooled, use transparent varnish to coat the vase evenly.
  5. Color with metallic colors. The drippings could be colored green to denote stems of flowers. Paint flowers. Use your imagination. Leave to dry.

      how it is made from waste products means it requires a lot of colors and i think colors are of waste products and it also takes a lot of time how we make it in school
