Now if you read my blog I bet you have tons of newspapers lying around every week. Do you use coupons?! Do you get the Sunday paper or many Sunday papers? How did I guess??? Well what are you waiting for? Go get 'em!
Start with one single sheet of newspaper. Try not to use the really colorful stuff. I can't say for sure if the colored ink is any worse for you than the black, but my brain keeps making a connection between all the dyes we should try not to eat. If I have organic soil and organic seeds, I guess I should shy away from the funnies....
You should fold it in half the long way so it looks like that up there.
Ooo you are so good at this! Now go find your preferred cylindrical object of choice. Wowsers that was a fun word you don't get to bust out too often. I chose my favorite stainless steel Bodum travel mug. It has a base of about 2" and worked like a charm. You can use anything. Bottle of IZZE. Can of Pam. Water bottle. A drinking glass. You name it. It's okay too if it's skinnier, say a can of IZZE :) It will just be harder to put dirt in later. I guess you could make a funnel out of newspaper since you'll be in such a DIY state of mind anyway. Put the creased end of newspaper toward the top/mouth of chosen object.
