Cut some book pages and glue 2-3 on end so we get a longer piece. Make about 20 to 30 piece.
Crumble each piece and dip in glue diluted with equal amount of water.

Squeeze out the glue while rotating to make a paper “vine”.
Drape a piece of plastic over the pot, and let the paper vines dry in a curved form over the side of the pot.

    I know "all" books at Goodwill aren't old books that most people don't want. I've found some good finds also. But a lot of books are from cleaning out garages, attics, storage sheds, etc. that have had books stored in boxes...even sent some old books

      @Sue Sanders And some of them were probably classics that would cost a mint.
