DIY: Suitcase Planter


Sarah from Modern Roost shared this Suitcase Planter that her brother made, and I think it's perfect for Renewal month. It's also fit for that green-thumb dude in your life. What an inventive way to give new purpose to the dusty, old suitcase sitting in your attic!

To get the supply list and learn the steps,

.

Supplies

  • One vintage suitcase
  • Four prefab chair legs with screws
  • Potted succulents (or other plants)
  • Landscaping stone
  • One plastic garbage bag

How to:
According to Modern Roost, "[My brother] lined the inside with plastic, placed potted succulents in the case and covered them with landscaping stone. The stones are heavy, but he reinforced the bottom with support beams and screwed the legs onto the frame underneath." If you don't want to use reinforcement beams, though, try replacing some of the landscaping stone with lighweight perlite.

It is creative, but I don't like the way it looks.

I have a vintage style suitcase that would be perfect, and I just bought 2 succulents! But my only question is, I read that they should be potted in a container with a hole at the bottom to allow for drainage. I don't want to drill any holes in my suitcase.... any ideas?
