What you’ll need

• 2 small sushi mats

• An empty tin can, cleaned and labels removed

• Scissors

• Glue gun (with cartridges)


1 Start at any point on the can. Apply a line of glue from top to bottom.

2 Place one edge of a mat along the line of the glue and wait for it to dry.

3 Repeat these steps, leaving a 2.5cm space between the lines of glue, until the ends of the mats meet and the can is covered completely. Trim off any excess mat with scissors.

4 Now you can plant your herbs – you have a rustic piece of decor and a fresh ingredient for your next meal.
