This uses a Nespresso pod as a planter- #upcycle
Step 1: Get a Used Nespresso Pod
It will have a waffle pattern cut into it if it is used.
Step 2: Cut the Top and Clean It Out
I used a sharp knife to cut away at the foil, then i rinsed it out, only rinse it because these grounds make a mess, don't try to scoop it out. I went around the edge where the foil was connected to the cup with my knife to clean it up a bit, then one final rinse, I was good.
Step 3: Flatten the Bottom
I will barely stand if you leave it like this, but if apply pressure to the top of the cup the bottom will flatten leaving you with a very flat bottom.
Step 4: Add Dirt!
I filled it with dirt and some grass seed and it grew, there are holes in the bottom of pod for natural drainage.
