Dollar Store Planter Ideas

$4.25
10 Minutes
Easy

Hi everyone, I went to Dollar Tree this morning to get another mesh hamper and I spotted these beauties and decided to plant them. I picked up 3 little girl's purses for a dollar each, and the bonnet for a dollar also. A packet of zinnia seeds was 25 cents, so I had a whole lot of fun for under $5 :) I always think I am finished with my garden, but then another "gemmy" idea shows up! I also took a picture of my strawberries which are surprising me with their flowers already! Crazy good!
These are little girls purses, and they are mesh, which I thought was great for planting. I put a little plastic lid in the bottom, and then the zinnias. Once they take off I will hang them on my string of solar lights--lightweight!
The bonnet unlplanted
and planted with more zinnia seeds.
My crazy happy strawberry plants through my kitchen door. This is what started the hunt for the plant covering (mesh hamper)
