Hard plastic tubs that once held your favorite lotions and other potions can be remade into the perfect pots for plants. Give the empty tubs a makeover with colorful craft paint (we used 3 coats) and let it dry overnight.
- Cut eight long strips of rope (each about 3 feet long) and knot together on the bottom, leaving a decorative tail of about 2” long.
- Then, knot the 4 pairs of rope together about 3” from the bottom knot. To finish the hanging holder, knot adjacent strands together again about 3” away from the previous knot.
- Knot the top of the rope ends (where it will hang) and place the colorful pot inside.
- Fill with soil and add arid-loving plants like succulents and cacti.
