Transform the Phone Book into little seed pots

Its that time of year again you walk out your front door and there at your feet is a bag with a heavy phone book in it. Many people just toss them out but instead do something awesome with it.. make little seed pots!!!

What you need:
~ 1 phone book
~ 1 short and fat shot glass, or a spice shaker

What you do:
~ Start by taking a sheet of phone book, fold it in half (long ways)
~ Wrap it tightly around your shot glass leaving a overhang on the bottom
~ Fold in the overhang around the bottom of the glass creating a bottom
~ Press the shot lass onto a hard surface and twist
~ Slowly pull up glass leaving a little pot
~ Push up the bottom just a little
~ Fill with potting mix and plant seed
~ When ready to plant into garden, plant whole thing (it will decompose)

  1. We did this last year with newspaper. It was great. Anything small will work. We used our salt shaker.
