Craft Party - "Upcycling" Flower Pots!

We absolutely love the idea of craft parties for apartment communities, because it allows people to actually build something, which provides a bond between the resident and the community.  Every time they see or use that item, they think back positively on the event, which is more powerful than most summer parties!

We recently stumbled upon the idea of "Upcycling", which is great for communities that are trying to "go green".  Basically, rather than throwing something out or recycling it, Upcycling means taking that item and improving it.  This particular craft apartment party takes broken flower pots and completely re-imagines them into absolutely fantastic scenes!  Mosses, ferns, cactusus, or other small plants, along with pot shards and pebbles, can be used to create these neat scenes with the broken pot.

Talk to your local nursery well ahead to start stockpiling supplies, where you might get the broken pots for free!  They may even sponsor the event to cover other costs, and provide knowledge on what plants would be best for the project.  From a discussion about this project:

I have made one of these, I just talked to the local gardening store and let them know I was interested in any broken pots they have for crafts. They ended up giving me a red ceramic pot with a large crack in it for free.

Of course, make sure to take pictures throughout the project, as well as a few months later to see the final results!

(If you like the idea of Upcycling, see all sorts of neat upcycling projects here!)
