I wanted to put some sort of planters in the kids bathroom that I am working on redoing, and was looking for something cute but fits the kid theme. I decided to plant some air plants in a plastic dinosaur to make a kid bathroom planter. I found and ordered these plastic dinosaurs online. I originally was going to make several of the dinosaurs from the set into planters but they quickly became a favorite toy.
I cut a hole in the back of the dinosaur with a knife that would fit the plants I wanted to plant. The little dinosaur in the picture became Liam’s new favorite teething toy. HAHA
Next I took the dino outside to paint it with spray paint. I wanted to do it in a bright orange color to accent the colors I already have in mind for the rest of the bathroom. For a whimsical children’s look, I think primary colors work well for a nice kid vibe in a children’s space.
After thorough drying, it’s time to fill it with dirt and a plant! I used a couple small air plants in the back of my brontosaurus. Such a happy Dino face 🙂 .
I am planning on making a planter out of a shark as well for the bathroom. I think I will paint it blue or purple. Small ferns and succulents would also look cute in the figurine planters if you wanted to use other kind of plants. Pretty simple yet very modern cute!
Until next week, XOXO! <3
