Planter From Trash

I'm always looking for ways to not throw anything away. I also love to have things growing in my window year round but that means smaller planters that will fit on the narrow ledge. I was going to use this covered shampoo bottle as a vase but decided on a planter instead.

After cutting off the top I gave it a good wash. I covered it in contact paper and poked drainage holes in the bottom. After planting I'm glad I left the bottle tall so it gets more sun in the window.

It looks cute in the window with a little dinosaur for charm.

  2. This is super cute! Who would've thought! I agree with you. I hate throwing away things like this. I am almost out of conditioner and I think I'll cover it with scrap fabric instead of the contact paper. Amazing and easy idea! Thanks for sharing!
