A quick and fun DIY project that lets you use recycled plastic bottles for something good. Create your own planter, add on a face, and watch your new friend’s hair grow!
What you will need
Ready? Let’s get making…
Cut the bottom off of a plastic bottle. With a nail make 2 or 3 holes in the base so that water can drain away when you water your plant. This will stop the plant from drowning.
Glue on the googly eyes with super glue or hot glue. You can also use the bottle cap as a nose. Be as creative as you like.
We added pipe cleaner arms and eye stalks for that extra epic touch. 😊
Fill the containers with soil almost to the top (leave about 1 cm) and cover with a layer of seeds (bird seed, chia seeds or cress), then cover with another layer of soil.
Keep the soil moist and in a couple of days your plants will start to grow. Or alternatively, plant with a fully-grown succulent like we did!
