Colander Planter

I found this pretty colander at Target on the clearance shelf!  It was exactly what I had been searching the thrift stores for.

 I needed the following supplies:

Also, you need potting soil.  Here is a list of what you need:
  • River rocks
  • Moss
  • Potting Soil
  • Any assortment of ferns/small plants
  • Colander
  • Trowel (or your hands)
I covered the bottom with river rocks, the then lined the sides with the moss.  I wanted to put something between the soil and the large open slots of the colander.   Then, fill the colander with potting soil, and place the plants where you want them!  Easy!

It probably only took 15 minutes to complete.  I put it all together in the kitchen sink (it is raining, again, outside) to minimize mess.

My planter will go on my kitchen bar.  I used one mahogany fern, and three hedra helix ivies!
