Make gardening an adventure back in time with these sure to excite dinosaur succulent planters.
by Casey Johnson
- Medium Plastic Dinosaurs (Walmart or Dollar Store)
- Spray Paint (Plastic Adhesive)
- X-Acto Knife
- Cactus Potting Soil
- Succulent Assortment
- Newspaper or Scrap Board
- Moss (purchase or find in the yard)
- Gather all of your needed supplies together at your outdoor workstation.
- Begin by spray painting your dinosaurs. Get creative, merge the colors for a gradient effect or go solid. (allow paint to fully dry)
- Using an x-acto knife, cut a hole in the back of your dinosaur large enough to fit a succulent or two.
- Using a spoon or your hands, fill the dinosaur with potting soil, leaving room to add your succulents.
- Carefully add your succulents, filling in more soil around the empty areas. Add moss for a decorative finishing effect.
- Your dinosaur planter is complete. Find an area indoors to place your succulent-a-saurus creations. You could even make them a smaller part of a larger terrarium. Enjoy!
