It's really easy  ;)
I'll show you on Sunday  :wave:
Just bring a deodorant or body spray with you - all will become clear, I promise !
I've got some loo rolls that I've not managed to do anything with for the last year, they're currently decorating my office - if I remember, I'll bring them too  ;)

I got a lovely little wood gadget as a pressie a few years ago to make paper pots. Once I had mastered the technique it was easy to adapt any round can or tin to do the same and it is so good to recycle paper

 A piece of pipe is just as good, and if you use a piece of pipe just put newspaper in the bottom of it to keep the soil there.  Short of that  add lutter guard to the bottom to give it some support.   Have to ask hubby to make it permanent.
