Thinking of decorating your home and/or cubicle and want to add analogue accents? Try making a DIY flowerpot with the help of medium format spools!
Film spools (about 6)
Dry foam (for bottom of flower pot)
Artificial plant stem of your choice—try to make sure the leaves match well with the shape of the flower
Green covered florist wire
Ribbon of your choice for color of flower
Hot glue gun/ glue sticks
Use the florist wire to wrap each film spool. Leave enough wire to be able to use it to attach it to the stem later.
Wrap each wired film spool with your ribbon. Make sure to glue at the start and the end of the ribbon.
Bend your stem so that it’s arched over at the top. Start attaching each spool at the top of the arch, going down, by wrapping the wire around the stem. Cut off the leftover wire. Use the grapevine wire for extra support. You can wrap the entire stem with grapevine wire if you need to.
Place foam in the bottom of your flowerpot. Insert your stem in the middle and make sure it is stable.
Cover your foam with moss by gluing it down with your hot glue gun. The moss will add some needed support. You can use it to take up space left in between the pot and the foam. Build up a good bit right around the base of the stem.
