How To Make Your Own Book Planters for Succulents
I am a firm believer that it doesn't take much to add a little charm to your home or office. During my recent visit to Poke Acupuncture, I noticed that Russell had added tons of new decorations. My favorites were his DIY homemade book planters. Here is a step by step lesson on how to create them yourself. Russell talks with us about his inspiration behind creating these fun book planters:I first saw these in my favorite geniusly-designed clothing store, TheWarehouse in Echo Park. They fulifill two of my great loves: oldbooks and negligently caring for plants that are difficult to kill,thus making me feel like I have a green thumb (when in fact I have thekiss of death wtih plants). Some may cry "sacrilege!" Supplies: 1 Vintage book.2-3 small succulents. Instructions: 1. 2. The hole does not need to be clean or pretty because the only pagethat will be visible is the top page, so dont worry if it tears badly,or seems jagged. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Thanks for the lesson, Russell!
