I needed something extra for a Secret Santa gift.
The recipient is a little quirky in the most endearing way, and I had in mind a dinosaur pot plant.
However several stores later and even recruiting family and friends I wasn't able to find the right sort of dinosaur for the task.
I will apologise now, I completely forgot to take pictures of the first quirky pot I made, during its process. So the steps are of the second one I made.
I picked up an animal pack at a discount store (although a little smaller than what I was wanting) plus a can of spray paint that also sticks to plastic and a succulent plant at the hardware store.
I used a box cutter/ Stanley knife to cut a piece of the back out.
This was rather easy but please remember to always cut away from your body just in case the blade slips.
I sprayed the toy with a couple of coats for paint, left it to dry.
And planted in the succulent.
A quirky little plant holder to sit on a desk or windowsill for a person in your life who has a great sense of humour or just young at heart.
I made another for a friend who was helping me out trying to find a dinosaur as she couldn't quite picture what I was trying to achieve.
