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.
