Fantastic weather + bags of enthusiasm = just the right formula from the people Old Trafford for today’s celebrations in the centenary gardens.
As well as the old favourites, making CD sun-catchers and button bracelets, we took on board the green-fingered flavour of the event – it being within the lush looking centenary gardens – by making crazy planters.Fancy making your own crazy milk bottle planter?
Carefully slice the bottom off a one-litre plastic milk bottle and make some holes in the lid (eg with a small screw driver).
Turn upside down, and fill with compost topped with a plant of your choice.
Doesn’t the handle look like a nose? Ok, so decorate the bottle to look like a face, drawing with felt pens or simply sticking on some googley eyes.
The plant looks like hair and we added further decorations by stringing buttons and beads through holes made at the top of the bottle. We also made colourful bead circles from Fruitshoot bottles.
