How to Drill Drainage Holes in Plant Pots
I recently bought a bunch of porcelain containers to use as plant pots, but they have no drain hole! After a little internet research, I found out that it’s easy to make one. You’ll need a power drill, a diamond drill bit, and a bowl of water.
- Place a towel down to protect your surface/
- Put a little water on the surface of where you want to drill, and start to drill. Go slowly, and don’t press too hard.
- Periodically, make sure to dip the drill bit into the bowl of water to cool if off.
When you’re drilling, the most important part is to keep the drill bit from getting too hot. The heat will cause the porcelain to crack and break. And that’s it!
