How to make plaster of paris flower pots: https://www.gardenguides.com/95186-make-plaster-paris-flower-pots.html
Nancy, I have seen the videos showing plaster on old lacy doilies draped over an object after being dipped in plaster, also large rhubarb leaves placed over a sand mound and plaster added to the back to make a mold like the big leaf, plaster poured into a plastic pot (like an old plastic planter that comes on plants from the store) and a smaller bucket placed inside of it to form the plaster only to the edge of the larger planter and make a mold, and even plastic bags put over a metal bowl and plaster added .....all of these left to dry out to make a flower pot from plaster. Portland cement was the most common plaster used, but even Plaster of Paris might do (but not be as strong). They also added sand like what is used in a garden or child's sand box. Cement to sand proportions are on the Portland cement bags for that. I hope this helps.
I've been thinking about doing the same thing. I remember as a kid working with Plaster of Paris and thought it would be fun to make some flower pots. In my research I discovered that Plaster of Paris MUST be sealed well because the material is porous and will eventually disintegrate as it gets wet either from watering the plant or being outside. Now I'm looking at using a fine concrete instead. Something like Shapecrete or similar. The process is just about the same as using Plaster of Paris, but the finished pot will last longer as an outside pot. Here's a video showing an easy way to use recycled material to make the molds and information about the method. Of course, it's your choice which product to use. I just thought I'd share my thoughts and a little bit about what I've learned in my research. Wishing you the best.
You need a mold then fill with plaster or cement then place another bowl inside and press down leave till dry
