Up-Cycled Flower Pots and Planters

This month’s Year of Reuse program at the Lopez Library will be a hands-on afternoon of up-cycling. Be inspired to transform familiar items that would otherwise end up in the landfill or recycling bin into beautiful and fun containers for plants and gardens. Thanks to the annual collaboration between the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District and Oregon’s Realms School, there are 4 bins of adorable shoes ready to be transformed into garden and porch ready planters for your home! The Library program will also include a demonstration of how to transform wine bottles into succulent containers and/or drinking tumblers with one special cut. A few free demonstration glasses will be available to program participants. If you have great garden container up-cycle materials, ideas, or examples, bring your photos or containers to share with the group. The Library will provide some potting soil, and a few succulent plants for taking home. Please bring any plants to use in your own creation, or to share with others. This event is free and open to all ages, and will leave many free items for participants to take home with them.
