Okay so for the first step you will need to blow up your balloon and when tying make sure and tie in a thick rubber band to hang it by.

For the next step I used modeling clay. Separated it into 4 secitons and rolled each section out trying to keep the shape round.

Don't forget to visit my blog to see what products I used. This project took me three attempts testing different products before I found a combination that was durable enough and fully waterproof. Don't do the same mistakes I did.  My first attempt ended up smushed on the floor after the first night hanging.

What do you guys think?  Cute? I decided to give my pots drainage holes. This is totally optional but, surprisingly I don't find it that disturbing. My husband was super cautious about this and was trying to talk me out of it but, I took the chance because I know it's hard for plants to survive without drainage. I simply take the plants outside for watering or leave a towel on the floor below it for 10 minutes. As easy as that.

    Puta shallow layer of aquarium rocks at the bottom of the pot. Adda small handful of water beads in the bottom before you add soil. The water beads will absorb and hold the extra water. That should allow you to avoid drilling any holes in this cute pot.
