Hand-Dipped Planters


Become a master plaster caster with this botanical crate! Use two plaster molds to make sturdy planters. Then dip in pastel paints to make each planter unique. Craft paper plants with winding tendrils or spiky leaves to feature in your new planters. No watering needed!

Behind the design

As you wait for the plaster to harden, feel the outside of the mold and you’ll notice it’s warm. That’s a chemical reaction at work as the particles rearrange to make a new material!

    My 12 year old daughter spent a rainy Saturday creating these stylish planters. She worked diligently through each step and was very impressed by how smooth the plaster planters turned out and the ultimate finished product. She even cleaned out a shelf in her room to display her creations!



    Love the product. Had a little trouble keeping the leaves sticking but I'm sure I can figure it out.
