Tetra Pak plant pots

True to the motto “make old from new”, we have many great upcycling ideas for you, how you can easily recycle used items. How about stylish DIY flower pots made of tetra pack bags, for example? Milk carton upcycling is quick, avoids unnecessary waste and looks great too! In our step-by-step instructions, we will show you how you can give used tetra pack bags a second life!

Milk carton upcycling: you need it!

  • Empty tetra packs of juice or milk
  • scissors
  • towel
  • Felt pens
  • Flowers / plants / herbs
  • Fresh earth to refill

Upcycling ideas: step-by-step instructions

Step 1: cut the Tetrapack

First, use a cutter knife to carefully cut the upper part of the milk cartons (approx. 5-6 cm). Then you rinse the bag with warm water and detergent.

Step 2: Peel off the paper layer

Then knead the bag until the top layer of paper can be removed and carefully pull it off.
The layer can be removed particularly easily from the seam.
You can attach an adhesive strip to the bottom of the floor for a better grip.

Step 3: design Tetrapack!

If the bag is free of the top paper layer, you can fold the edge over twice and decorate the bag with patterns or sayings as you wish. The milk cartons shine particularly beautiful when painted with white, fresh colors. You simply apply this to the bag with a sponge!

Step 4: plant flowers!

Now you can plant your flowers in the milk carton and your mini flower vase is ready! We chose the small Pilea plant. A little tip: The small pots are great as a souvenir or gift! How about, for example, fresh herb plants for cooking enthusiasts?
