Recycled kitchen teapot planter

Going potty!

We all know how frustrating it is when you (or that annoying guest) chips or breaks your favourite teapot. It’s cry-worthy really. It can be heartbreaking to have to throw it out, never to be seen again - BUT, there is hope for when this situation arises!

Upcycle that gorgeous teapot, by letting the kids use it as a pot plant. They will have fun planting goodies in mom’s once off-limits teapot and you will be able to experience the joy of still seeing your beloved teapot around the home. Sounds like a deal right?

If you don’t have a pre-loved teapot of your own to use - why not visit some of your local second-hand stores - you’ll be bound to pick up something for a steal that will do the trick. This really is a fun activity, and such a pretty way of sprucing up your garden decor, or even as an indoor plant idea.

Now go grab that teapot and let’s get planting!
