DIY Dinosaur Succulent Planter

By The How-To Gal on Sep 09, 2013

I love dinosaurs. Always have. And when I saw these two large plastic dinosaurs for $0.99 at Savers, I knew a splash of prehistoric nostalgia was just what my kid's bathroom needed.

Step One: Drill tiny holes where you want to plant your succulent.

Step Two: Make a larger opening in the dinosaur with a knife, using the tiny holes as a guide.

My little dinos live in the window sill above the bathtub in my kids' bathroom. They make cleaning the toilets slightly more enjoyable.
