DIY Project ~ Hypertufa Pots

$15
1 Hour
Easy

The Delaware Center for Horticulture, where I volunteer, just held a wonderful hypertufa trough workshop. We made pots and learned how easy it is to make your own hypertufa container gardens. It is as fun as making mud pies when you were a kid! Check out my post for the hypertufa recipe and all the details!

    Hey @Barb Rosen , have you tried any for the fairy gardens yet? I am contemplating it, saw some really awesome ones on pinterest, but not sure how labor intensive they are.

    Easy enough to make the bowls or boxes, @360 Sod (Donna Dixson) . While you are mixing, make plenty because it is messy. I have been eyeing those hypertufa fairy houses and think I'll take a crack at those soon. Looks like it would be the basic box with window and door cutouts. I'd use tin for the roof. Are you going to try it too?
