- Step-by-step realization of an orange container with a trunk:
- Gain weight and substrate in the orange bin
Why not transform a trunk into an original orange container, easy to move thanks to its wheels? As winter approaches, getting back to the shelter will be a breeze.
Time: 3 hours
Step-by-step realization of an orange container with a trunk:
Dust, then wash the trunk.
Paint the four pieces of cleats with the coloring Down Pipe.
Glue them and screw them to the four corners of the trunk to raise it.
Then screw the four wheels.
Cover the hardware and angles with masking tape and apply a coat of Down Pipe paint to the trunk.
Once dry, pass the flame of the candle in places to leave traces of fat.
Pass a second coat of paint on the trunk, this time coloring Castle Gray.
Once dry, with the spatula, scrape gently where the candle has gone to remove the fat and let appear the darker tone (Down Pipe color).
Cut out labels, newspapers and other tickets and stick them to the glue.
Write the desired words ("High", "Low", "Fragile",...) using the metal letters, the stencil brush and the brown acrylic paint.
Remove the masking tape from the hardware and run a fine grit sandpaper.
Staple the polyane tarpaulin inside the trunk, fill with soil and install the shrub.
Gain weight and substrate in the orange bin
Trick If the shrub does not need a lot of soil, create a double bottom.
For this, use a MDF board approximately 1 cm thick cut to the dimensions of the inside of the trunk and four small flower pots.
Install the pots upside down in the bottom of the trunk, at the four corners.
Put the board on it, you're done.
