These animal planters are a relatively quick project that make a lovely gift or addition to your own collection of plants. Love the fact that I was able to re-purpose out grown toys.
- 1-4 New or used Plastic Animals
- 1 Sharp Stanley Knife
- 1 Marker Pen
- 1 Small amount of good quality soil
- 1 Small amount of pebbles
- 1-4 Combination of succulents
- 1 Pair safety gloves
- 1 Mask for when you are handling the soil
- Mark the area you wish to cut out on the top surface of the plastic toy with your pen.
- With gloves on carefully cut out that shape with your knife.
- Fill the now exposed hollow insides of the plastic toy with soil.
- Pick which plant you feel suits each toy best, really cannot go wrong here.
Decorate with pebbles. ENJOY your miniature animal garden.
So far I have only used plastic animal toys but I am looking to try out other out grown objects to create an element of surprise in our garden.
