Jell-O Mold Planter
Learn how to make a planter that fits over a picnic table umbrella from funky old Jell-O molds found at garage sales and thrift stores.
- To use as a planter, simply punch some drainage holes in the Jell-O mold. Since the molds are so shallow, gravel is not needed to for the base. Just fill the mold with potting soil and shallow-rooted plants that won't be too crowded by the shallow container. Spread gravel on top of the soil. Because of the small container's size, the plants will need watering daily.
- Slip the mold around your picnic umbrella pole, and you have an instant—living—centerpiece!
