So here's a little recycling job I did with some old shoes. The shoes were old and smelly, but I thought they looked nice. So I decided to go green double-time by planting flowers in them.
- Old shoes
- Small stones / Pebbles
Step 1: Shoes
Grab your shoes. Now we want to have drainage, so get your drill and a good sized bit. Drill holes in the bottom of the shoe through the rubber. Don't make too many or too little, but a good number.
Now, grab the pebbles. Place them in the bottom of the shoe before putting in firt for even more drainage.
Step 2: Dirt & Seeds
Slap in some good soil and then plant some seeds as you would normally. Enjoy your shoe flowers, and don't forget to water!
Step 3: Admire
Keep track and good care of your shoes, making sure they get water and sun. Take them to the park and walk them around. Play catch. Tell them a bedtime story (it helps).
Step 4: Flowering!
Here's an update on how the flowers are doing. In one show, there is a lot of growth! I can't wait to see more! The other one is coming along...
