Dino Planters!

We just took a vacation to Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, so beautiful and so nice to spend some time in the sand to kick off this summer. These Dinosaur planters were the beach project of choice. I have to be honest and admit that I saw something similar to this online and was so in love I had to try to make it myself. I put the plastic toys in the sun for a little bit so the plastic became more malleable. Then I just cut out some holes in the backs and filled the head and tail with hardening foam so that there would be a cavity for the plant to go in. Enjoy the photo shoot!

The pink plants were a little to big to do well in the dino planters, so I have removed them and am trying to figure out another succulent to put in their place. The succulent is thriving, its aptly named "lizard."
