Papercrete-containers, fairy houses, and other uses

(Bev) Wytheville, VA(Zone 6a)

My papercrete adventure started in the Container Garden forum with a posting by TomTom on "How to make papercrete containers" then continued on " . . . papercrete container #2" I've been obsessed with this medium and trying different formulas and techniques.

The papercrete is very similar to hypertufa using shredded paper instead of peat moss and normally doesn't include sand, but it can be added.

I'll re-post here some of the pics I posted on those threads, but please check out the original threads for additional information, formulas, and techniques from others that are also experimenting.
