This plumbers planter is as fresh as a daisy!
This idea is so simple its a crime. Plumbers use these to carry their nipples and elbows around. Sorry...just had to say that! I thought the carryall would be a fab and unusual planter.
The tool box has a a space on the bottom so they can be stacked. If you had several you could use them to organize your small junk in your creative room.
Each of the ten cubbies is filled with something different. The succulents will need less water than the annuals so water each cubby accordingly.
All soil is covered with freshly harvested moss. Some of the cubbies simply have moss and rock. Always good to leave a negative space in a planter like this.
Love the green and pink. Succulents such as these are perrenials and can be brought in the house to winter. Annuals will have to be replaced each year.
And heres your birdseye view. So happy!

I'll be doing a series of easy, peasy, lemon squeezy planter projects over the next couple of weeks. Seems appropriate to me now that summer seems to "officially" be here!!


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
