Succulent-a-Saurus

Make gardening an adventure back in time with these sure to excite dinosaur succulent planters. 

by Casey Johnson

 

SUPPLIES

  • 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)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Gather all of your needed supplies together at your outdoor workstation. 
  2. Begin by spray painting your dinosaurs. Get creative, merge the colors for a gradient effect or go solid. (allow paint to fully dry) 
  3. Using an x-acto knife, cut a hole in the back of your dinosaur large enough to fit a succulent or two. 
  4. Using a spoon or your hands, fill the dinosaur with potting soil, leaving room to add your succulents.
  5. Carefully add your succulents, filling in more soil around the empty areas. Add moss for a decorative finishing effect.
  6. 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!
