Outdoor flowerpot or: How I raised bamboo!

Good day to all curious !!!
My version floor vases tubules
Let’s start with the lyrics:
A colleague at work turned my attention to discarded unnecessarily cardboard tubes from flounces and said that I should definitely make them a pot in her office. I do not think that such a small thing can to encourage me on a new experiment in the works.

1

Now down to business!
I’ll tell you how I do it for those who will be interested.
Ducts managed to gather quite a lot and it’s good, because their walls are thin, but the idea has already “live” and is not going anywhere
Height of pipe 60 cm., 6 cm.

2

Made of cardboard template of the right angle, and wrapping it around the tube we get a scythe, but very clean cut)))
Such cuts I made at different heights, which would then create a small cascade of eight tubes.

3

Each size I needed two, to further strengthen the pipes had their twinned.

4

You can enhance the pipe in two ways, each will choose a convenient to him, one for me (internal) proved to be more accurate, and even do not have to glue them together, very tightly held.

5

That’s how it looks around, it turns out much stronger than the first (outer) reinforcing walls

6

Collect all the design on a piece of cardboard from the box, I put a pleasant and looked around with a pencil outline of each tube separately from the others, then cut a hole through.
This I would like to achieve that would each tube was in the group, but does not touch the other, as it stood on its own.

7

All pipes are plastered on napkins PVA glue, which would give a lighter shade.
While they were drying, I glued two square pieces of cardboard for the base and the top third pasted already cut holes

8

The base turned out such that each tube for strength “Drowning” per carton depth.

9

This gofrobumagoy with color transition (it was not possible to photograph better) paste over each pipe

10

Now the pipe is almost similar to bamboo)))

11

“Ribs” made using a conventional household cord wrapped several times and secure with hot glue, so bamboo looks more natural.

12

That’s about the way it looks is not yet fixed, but is almost ready.
Then you can come up with all that want …

13

I decided to use a conventional gravel and plastic grass

14

Another added some colored stones, all the decorations glued on “Titan”

15

It seemed to me a little))), and the course went the other elements

16

At the bottom of the sidewall papered cork cardboard

17

Between the pipes hid a pair of  colors for the curious, well, or what would that there were)))

18

Well that’s all done!
It turned out that I wanted, but the soul does not lay … (((

19

And then had to ask for advice from my personal adviser (my daughter))))))
I was told to distribute the colors cherry !!!
And the truth is, like bamboo and cherry blossoms without …

20

Generally excellent solution has been found !!!
This is my story is finished, left to admire the fact that turned out and ready to go into the office of a colleague !!!
