I saved a cheese grater from being thrown away yesterday at the unmerciful hands of my mother, and I thought it would make a cute planter. Anyone have any ideas on how I could do that? I might make it a gift to someone--I'd like to have something growing in it before I gifted it.

thanks,

Getting in a little late, but I think a cheese grater would make a better windchime start than a planter.  Would look really cute with some old forks and spoons and whatnot hanging from the bottom.

Oh my gosh!  If we could figure this out it would be so cool.  Especially for a kitchen!  I'm thinking the plant would have to be kinda skinny to fit through the little wholes... hmmm... Any ideas?

If you found a slender enough pot, you could put the grater over top so it covers the pot. I think grass would grow easially through the holes (kind of like a chia-pet). Or a type of fern or something.

I actually agree with ninafaye, it would be an awesome windchime...hm....

But a planter would be very cool also!  A fern would probably work...

I saw in a book where someone took an old collander, filled it with a bed of moss and then put an orchid in it.  It had to have a tray under it but it was really pretty.  Not sure if something like that could be rigged in a cheese grater but you never know if one idea will help another.
