How to make a flowerpot with cardboard
To make a hexagonal carton, follow these steps:
Cut the rectangular cardboard. Keep in mind that the piece is of sufficient length and height to conceal the plastic or clay pot.
Measure the length of the rectangle, divide it into 6 equal lengths and mark them with a pencil.
Using the ruler, fold the carton through the previously marked parts.
Join the beginning and the end with adhesive tape.
Apply the desired color spray paint.
How to Paint Cardboard with Spray Paint
Acrylic paints like Pintyplus Evolution are ideal for painting cardboard. Due to its rapid drying (about 10 minutes), the carton is prevented from softening. The steps to be taken are as follows:
Spray spray paint from a greater distance than usual. Usually they are about 20cm, but in this case it should be doubled.
Paint with thin layers of paint giving smooth strokes. This prevents accumulation or excessive moisture for the carton.
Wait about 15 minutes for the paint to dry completely. On the other hand, it should be noted that whenever you paint with more than one color, you must start with the lightest (in this case white).
Choose your favorite colors from the Pintyplus Evolution range. With the help of the masking tape you can make different combinations. Tailor them to your style to create custom decorations.
