Pull out that old pair of Crocs, from the closet, that you don’t wear anymore because I’m going to show you how to recycle them into flower pots. An easy DIY that takes less than ten minutes from start to finish.
I scored this pair at a second hand store for $1. Last week I planted some annuals into cement bricks and had four leftover plants. This project will use up those four so that there’s no waste.
*tarp (easy clean-up)
*pair of Crocs
*twine or fishing line
Pack a nice amount of top soil in the toe portion of the shoe. Place the annual inside the shoe and add some additional top soil around the top and sides to hold them in place. Attach a piece of twine to the strap and tie it into a knot at the end. Once you hang it up give the plants a good drink of water. Some dirt will seep through the holes of the shoes, but don’t worry about it.
Use the fishing line, in place of the twine, to create a floating effect.
Find a location in your flower garden to hang the new planters. That’s it!
Mine have had a nice little home on these doors. I adopted this vintage door display from my Mom and they already had the hooks, so I just needed something unique to hang there.
As you can see from the photo below the doors are definitely due for a fresh coat of paint. Next year is what I tell myself.
It’s been five years and I keep saying that. Although I kinda like the distressed look.
