So, I'm totally obsessed with dinosaurs! And I love having plants in the house but I am the kiss o death to most plants. I've discovered that cacti and succulents can handle my not so green thumb the best so that's what I stick with.

Anywho, I saw this amazingness on pinterest and new I had to do it!http://www.moredesignplease.com/moredesignplease/2011/3/25/plaid-pigeon-toy-planters.html

So, behold!


I totally love it and it was so easy! All I did was get a $1 dino at Michael's, cut a hole in it, paint it Martha Stewart's granny smith green and added a bitchin succulent. Woot! I think I need a whole gang of dino plants now.
***UPDATE***
My sister's birthday was in April and I thought she needed a planter too! So, tada!!!

This is so fun! There are many dinosaurs missing limbs here at the preschool - now I know what to do with them!

Great job.

I like yours better than the one on the site you linked because it looks more like a part of the dinosaur. I'ma pin this one instead of those ones, if you don't mind. Wink
