I thought making a silicone sphere mold was going to be really tricky, time consuming. I was wrong, completely wrong, and that makes me so happy!!!
Consider how wide you want the opening to be for the planter. You’re going to press clay into the bottom of the container and then make a cut-out for it.
Now take a straw and cut it to about 1 ½” long. Place a little bit of clay in one end to plug the hole.
First, take a marker and mark a line onto the container that is about ½” from the top of the sphere. This will be where you stop pouring the silicone.
Let this cure for 30 minutes. Check back in 30 minutes and if it is dry and bouncy when you press on it, then it is safe to remove the silicone mold from the container.
