Upcycled Dinosaur Planter - Gold Stegosaurus With Air Plant
One of my favorite things about making these planters is the hunt for the used toys. I found two of this particular stegosaurus at a thrift store a few miles from my house. The folks who work at this place are used to seeing me purchase a bunch of seemingly random objects at the same time, but the person at the check out was new and asked, "Oh, are those for your kids?". When I told her that I don't actually have any children, she looked puzzled. I decided it was more fun to leave her with the mystery than to tell her about the planters :)
This air plant is incredibly easy to care for. It doesn't require soil, so it's simply placed in the planter but can be removed and changed out at any time. Tillandsia absorb water through their leaves, so it just needs to be run under the faucet once or twice a week and put near bright filtered light. They even thrive under office fluorescent lighting!
Height (including plant): 5 1/2"
Width: 2 1/2 "
Thanks for looking and please feel free to contact me with any questions!
