A recycled planter….


I know it's no surprise to some of you that I LOVE  my Latte's!!  Well, back when I was a "beginner" at them and my tummy was a little whimpy, I used to drink these…

IMG_7930 I still do from time to time, kind of like a liquid dessert!  Yummm!  Well, I just knew these cans would be good for something, and after storing them for FOREVER… I have an idea!!!!  I thought making it into a planter would be fun, BUT your little plant would outgrow this in no time at all (insert thinking cap here).  So I had hubby cut out the bottom of this, like so…

IMG_7931 This way, I can keep the lid on the bottom when I give the gift planter and when the roots need more space, I can take the lid off and put the whole container in a regular pot (I didn't have an empty pot ready, so I took this pic in a house plant I have) and now the roots can go crazy in this bigger pot! Well not these roots, cause my little sample is plastic, lol.

IMG_7933  I wanted this to be cute, but I couldn't add too much in too many places because I didn't want it to get ruined when watering.  Well, What do  you think?  Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a fabulously inky weekend!

  1. Such a sweet idea! Sprout is the fairy that drew me into PMS – I just love her! Did you laminate her? That would help protect your artwork from the watering can.
