Have you seen these quirky planters on Etsy yet? The ones above were created by Plaid Pigeon (shop inactive now).
Well it just so happens that they are very easy,FUN, and inexpensive to make!
What you will need:
-Plastic Dinosaur (You can find these at Walmart and Toys R Us)
The plastic dinosaur. I bought this one from Walmart for one dollar.
Not necessary but: I didn't like the color it originally came in, which was a sort of distressed bluish/purple. I painted this dino red (for some complimentary color action) with acrylics and sprayed a clear finish over it.
Take your Exacto Knife and cut a hole in the back of the dinosaur...just like carving a pumpkin...except this is plastic....and a tad bit harder.
Thankfully the dinosaurs are hollow inside so really all the hard work is over with. I made the hole in my little guy approximately 4-5 inches wide (don't worry about the edges around the hole because your plant should cover it up). You can now put soil and your plant inside.
After I placed the soil and plant inside I took a sewing needle (with much applied force) to make holes in the bottom which will expel some water. Make sure the hole is deep enough.
This is what yours should look similar to in the end. EPIC!!!!
