Denim Pocket Planter
That two-sizes-too-small pair of jeans you’ve been holding onto since high school? It’s enough already–really. Put them to better use with this idea—and bring a little plant life into your kitchen.
What you need:
• 1 pair old jeans
• 1 small indoor potted plant (like oxalis)
• potting soil
• small river rocks
• magnetic tape
• super glue
Cut out a back pocket from the jeans using scissors. Cut several pieces of magnetic tape and glue them to the back of the pocket—being careful not to let the glue bleed through to the front of the pocket. (For a longer lasting planter, line the pocket with a small plastic bag before proceeding to the next step.) Once dry, line the bottom of the pocket with a thin later of tiny river rocks. Carefully twist the plant out of its pot. Use your fingers to loosen the soil around the roots and divide the plant into smaller portions depending on the size of the pocket. Place the plant into the pocket and fill in the remaining space with potting soil. Once you’re satisfied with your creation, hang it on your refrigerator, adding minimal water when the soil feels dry to the touch.
(Don’t have a green thumb? This magnetic pocket also works great for storing pens on the fridge!)
