Nostalgic...guaranteed to make you smile troll succulent planters…because everyone needs to smile :-)
Step1 ~ find some trolls...I got these for a quarter a piece at a flea market ~ yay!
Step 2 ~ yank out that nasty hair...
Step 3 ~ choose a new lid...
Step 4 ~ add some pea gravel to their cute little body for drainage, top that off with a little dirt & pop in a succulent...
Step 5 ~ let the others admire the new do...

Why is it always so hard to get everyone to look at the camera !?

    You did not mention adding any soil. You do need something besides gravels don't you?

    Hi.. I have been doing this for years with my tillandsia!! I do have a problem with troll skin staining! Some brands can be especially difficult when removing stains. Do you have any advice on how to clean really set-in stains? Thanks!

    Thank you! I have a troll doll I was trying to do this with, but it wasn’t working. I’d put holes on his feet for drainage. Going to try pea gravel.
