DIY – Recycling Idea : from a Yogurt Box to a Flowerpot

Hi from Zurich,

I have to admit that today is raining cats and dogs but during the last weeks the weather in Switzerland has been amazing!

That’s why I had an idea: to recycle a big box of Zurich made yogurt.

Here is all you need:

– A yogurt box with a handle

– A washi tape

– A stencil (you can also make it out of paper)

– A white wire

– A paintbrush

– An indelible black marker.

– A little vase with flowers, of course!

The process is quite simple: Roll on the yogurt box with washi tape and then use a stencil to make the image you prefer. I chose the fox but you can make whatever you like. Take a meter of white wire and fold it in two, make two knots on both sides of the handle and than put a plant on it.

I liked this project because it is easy and fun and you can also recycle a very practical box of yogurt. I hope there is one like that even in London… isn’t there?
