Throwing pots- the easy way

My mum said to me one day: "you know you can buy those things to make pots out of newspaper? Surely if you can make them with one of those things, you can make them without."

Well yes, probably you can.

I forgot about it for a few days, then got a book out of the library and there it was: how to make pots out of newspaper.

I think they'll be much more stable once they're full of compost and plants.
For the shape to form them round, you need any straight sided object with one open end. A glass does it but feels a bit hazardous for squashing. I've used an ancient pot that used to hold mixed herbs.

Enjoy!
