Shoe Planters for Low-Cost Holiday Gifts
By: Maureen Gilmer
You can plant succulents in any container that holds soil and drains well. Those little shoes the kids grew out of make charming low cost holiday gifts for friends and family. Simply punch a few holes in the sole with a hammer and large nail. Then fill with Black Gold Cactus Mix and plant with lots of very small, inexpensive succulent seedlings. This idea is great for ladies’ high heels too. Shoe planters make for a fun, green family project that recycles shoes, utilizes water-conservative plants that will offer color all winter long.
