I love my plants and so I made them some pretty homes by pounding holes in the bottom of tin cans and then mosaicking them with bits of mirror.  Here they are without occupants.

Thanks everyone! i do love my plants! but i'm also hoping other people will love them for their plants Smiley.

i think the tin cans work okay with plants, i used one for 6 months and there was no rust and the plant was happy.

If you would like to try this, a good tutorial on mosiacking has been posted by slick here:

I keep saving coffee tins and the plastic ones this must be why.  What a wonderful idea
but how do you do it? what do I use to stick the mirror pieces on and where to get them? Now Im thinking you could use rocks and all kinds of other things. I also am saving the plastic coffee containers.
