Project – Upcycled Play-Doh Containers

This weekend I bought a flat of Johnny-Jump-Ups, also known by their true name of Viola cornuta. They are a sweet plant. Harbingers of spring, dainty, yet robust and frost-hardy; I love their whiskered faces. They are only a few inches high, and were the perfect choice for an Upcycling project. I have several empty Play-Doh containers on hand. Using floral sheers,  a screw driver would work too, I punched a drainage hole through the bottom of the plastic can. I then placed one plant inside, smoothed down with just a touch of soil, watered, and “Voila,” instant floral design. Fun! This would be a great kid’s craft for Easter or Mother’s Day.

  2. So fun and happy! Thanks for sharing….I can just imagine them on a kid’s room window sill, or on a elementary school teacher’s desk.

  3. Great idea! This is usually what I do with old jars or yogurt containers, but there’s no reason why these couldn’t be in the mix!
