It’s a world of amazing! Instead of buying your next planter, celebrate Earth Day and give back to your world by reusing a coconut shell and making your own.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Wooden beads
- Serrated knife
WHAT TO DO:
- One of the three holes in every coconuts is soft. Locate the soft one by prodding it with a screwdriver, then drain all of the coconut water, giving your ‘planter’ a drainage hole.
- Locate the seam on the coconut and split the coconut in half using a knife.
- Microwave the coconut for 1-2 minutes to easily remove all of the meat.
- Save the meat for cooking or toast it in the oven and top it on your fave ice cream.
- Cut 6 pieces of string about 3’ long and tie them together.
- Section off the string into three sections, and a few inches down—tie off a section, add a bead and tie off again.
- Repeat step 4 until all sections are beaded and tied.
- Place coconut snuggly into your planter.
- Add a layer of small rocks for drainage.
- Layer on soil and your succulent.
- Hang it up!
