1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Biodegradable seed starters made from newspaper on: January 22, 2013 11:54:06 PM
I came across these biodegradable newspaper seed starters on Reuseit.com and thought it was a clever idea. Theres a wooden tool with instructions on how to make these cute seed starter pots for the price of $18; however, Id rather make the starters for free.

Step-by-step directions with images: http://jinnyly.wordpress.com/2013/01/22/reuse-biodegradable-newspaper-seed-starters/

Let me know if you have any questions Smiley

Love this idea. I'll definitely keep this in mind if I ever need to make a headboard Cheesy.

Multipurpose fuse box/notice board/modern art... love this idea! Did you already have the rest of the decoration up, or do it in one go? It looks so coordinated - great job

I added pieces of decoration after I framed the fuse box. Smiley I tend to only buy things that I really adore and they somehow end up coordinating rather well. It's all about presentation and spacing.

so simple yet it really goes with the rest of your decor!

I have tried paintings, baskets, wallpaper, etc...this is the best idea of all!  Looks like I need to find some matching paint... thanks for sharing! Cheesy

Take pics! Smiley I'd love to see how your fuse box looks afterwards.

I have fuse box that's very visible in my hallway. Instead of covering it with a picture, which I considered doing, I just placed a frame on top of the fuse box.

Frame was $1. I then painted it to match the hallway color which is snowflake white. Hung it with wires and voila~ modern art.

I'm not sure if this belongs here in the reconstructed section but I wanted to share the idea.

Since framing the fuse box, I've began to use the cover of the fuse box to post event and movie tickets so we don't misplace them. Tickets are held up with magnets.

Hallway decor summary:
- Frame ($1) from thrift store
- 3 pack of Umbra mirrors ($5) from thrift store
- Texas license plate ($10) from Uncommon Objects in Austin, Texas

Thanks Love and Jexx! Smiley

Yea I had some extra buffalo fiber laying around and incorporated it into the grass. Buffalo is super soft and quite short haired. If I poked too hard, the buffalo fiber just disappears into the wool.

lol@Jexxican. love this post.
i haven't used wooly balls yet, though I plan on making some of my own and using them. how many balls do you stuff into your washer?

no matter what i say, it won't sound right...

How did you make them? I'd love to make some too, but I'm in France for the next year and all my fiber is at home Sad I'm sure I could find wool here somewhere though. Anyone know the french word for wool?

Wool in French is "laine" (sounds like "glenn" without the "g", so just "lenn"). You can buy wool roving from knitting stores. Might want to google it. I know of some places in Paris but I'm not quite sure where you are in France. PM me! Smiley My husband is French and from France. We were just there visiting family not too long ago.

Finished my woodland pincushion tonight. Just thought I'd share it Smiley.

Materials: wool, cotton, buffalo, organic cotton string, rayon ribbon, felting needle

Might consider writing a tutorial if there's demand for it. I'll take better pics and post them on my blog soon Smiley
