Making Pot People Using Plastic Flower Pots

Has anyone ever made pot people out of plastic pots. I too am having problems getting enough clay pots.

I have not personally done it, but according to this article it can be done.

The plastic ones are best for indoor display. I say this because anything I have ever done with plastic pots (at least the thinner, less expensive ones) have been ruined by the sun after one summer outside. The heavier ones have never lasted more than 2 summers. I would hate to see your hard work cracked and broken from sun damage.

I wholehearted agree that i would not put any time or money into fixing anything for outdoors with plastic pots as they just deteriorate too quickly. i do have some extra large pots that have held up nicely but not sure exactly what kind of material they are made of.


As to having trouble finding clay pots - here is an easy way to find them without making a trip.

Google where to find clay pots with your zip code and numerous local stores will pop up and they will usually tell you which stores have clay pots and what sizes are available. You can even call their garden center and ask them to set the ones you want aside for pick up later.

Generally, the stores that carry the most stock and the most sizes are Lowe's, Home Depot, Target and Walmart (occasionally), as well as Ace and True Value Hardware stores.

These are neat but think about clay and not plastic..
