Coffee Cup Planter

Apr 22, 2011

Here is another project dad and I made while he and mom were up to visit. Using the Dremel we drilled a hole in the lower side of the cof­fee cup so water could drain, then I placed a few rocks in the bot­tom of the cof­fee cup, some dirt and my plant. Once it grows a bit more I’ll place it in a larger con­tainer like an old spice tin or some­thing. Of course mak­ing sure to use my handy dandy Dremel to drill holes in the bot­tom of the tin. But until then it will sit in my kitchen win­dow bask­ing in the morn­ing sun.

Have a great weekend.
