Step by step: How to make your own jute flower pot

 
For this DIY, all you need is the planter that you normally plant your flowers in directly. There are several advantages to using this instead of putting it in another pot: First, you don’t need another pot, so you can save the money on more plants. Second, these plastic planters have holes in the bottom, which is ideal for watering from below and prevents the roots of your plants from rotting. If you’re using the flower pot indoors, make sure you place a plate or something similar underneath to catch the water. You can also use the flower pot outdoors. Ours has been outside for two months now and still looks like new.

Bathrooms are usually cut quite small. To have a great scent in this room and avoid stench, drip a few drops of essential oil in the middle of your toilet paper rolls. Every time someone takes some toilet paper, the scent of the oil will spread around the room. By the way, this trick works not only with the toilet paper roll, but also with your kitchen roll.
