GET CREATIVE THIS CHRISTMAS
Posted on 29th November 2018
All of our soup, sauce + pesto pots (including their labels) are 100% recyclable, but instead of popping them into the recycling this winter you could also reuse them in all sorts of fun + crafty ways! So once you’ve finished scoffing one of our tasty soups or experimenting with our sauces why not try your hand at upcycling our pots to get the creative juices flowing this Christmas.
Here are some of our favourite ways to do so:
The beauty of our soup + sauce pots is that they are watertight + when turned upside down make the perfect snow globe.
To begin with you will need to decide what you would like to put in your snow globe, we opted for a snowman + a few presents but let your imagine run wild. Now for the fun bit! Construct your chosen shapes using salt dough + bake in the oven on a low heat (75-100°C) until solid (this can take a few hours). Once ready, paint the shapes using vegan acrylic paint, glue them to the inside of the pot lid + leave to dry overnight.
The following day, fill the pot with water and/or vegan glycerine + add biodegradable glitter (about 1-2 tsp). Then pop the lid back onto the pot + seal tightly. Give it a good shake + watch it snow!
DECORATIVE CHRISTMAS FIGURES
Is that corner of your living room somewhat lacking? Or is there a spare space on the mantelpiece? Then our decorative Christmas figures could be just the thing.
Try gluing the bottom of one of our smaller sauce pots onto the bottom of a soup pot to create the body of the figure. Then you can go ahead + decorate as you wish, we painted ours brown + added cardboard antlers to the top to form a reindeer. Or you can go one step further by turning one of our 150g pesto pots into a hat + decorating the figure as a snowman.
SANTA TREAT POT
Impress your guests this festive season by serving them vegan goodies straight from Santa’s belly.
We rejuvenated our soup pot by wrapping red acrylic felt around the body of the pot, white felt trim around the rim + a card belt buckle wrapped around his middle to finish. Then simply fill with your favourite sweet treats to serve, we suggest candy canes or vegan gingerbread.
