How you felt about the activity
There are numerous arts that I have learned from youtube, but today I would like to talk about art that I like the most. It is making of garden seeds pots. I have come to know about this thing through my friend. He has a garden in his home.
Recently from the last 2 months, my mother has installed a terrace garden in my home. So she needs some garden pots which are made by hand. She wants to be made by hand because the seeds that she is going to place in pots are delicate. They cannot be put into a normal pot. So I have decided to make it. I watch a youtube video about it. On the first attempt, I could not make it. But with the encouragement of my mother, I tried and got succeeded. It is made of wood and paper. I have used nails to join them. It looks like a square box. I felt glad after I made that thing; it is the first time for me.
