Grunge look Plant holder DIY using Aluminium Foil

Grunge look Plant holder DIY using Aluminium Foil

Hi  friends
I still am in an aluminum foil craft mode mentally and while working  whenever  I could find some spare time I finally finished this project today.
I’ve tried to give this an industrial/ masculine/ Grunge look as I wanted to make something for the study desk of my elder son who’s soon going to be 18.
I started with a cardboard liquor bottle box and this is how it looks now after all the work

This is how this was worked on, The pics are self explanatory, in case you have any questions, pl mail me. click on the image to enlarge.

Steps:
Cut the box
Remove the printed paper
Add texture with corrugated paper, jute twine, beads, buttons, washers, wire mesh, gesso etc
Cover with crushed foil; I have not used any glue in this project and my homemade Gesso gave a very strong bond too. 
welll, yes, that indeed is liquid shoe-polish you see in the pic and a shoe brush to colour my plant holder!! used shoe polish and polished with a rag to give a grunge look.
