Lets make it: DIY Tin Planter

This tin box was lying around the apartment. It was a protective box that came with a watch. I adore boxes but my collection has become somehow overwhelming.

After I saw this on Apartment Therapy and I got inspired.

I rescued a lonely succulent from my balcony and plant it in this little square. I used the top of the box as I drainage plate. Yup, that simple. am I a genius or what?

One important thing: nail holes in the bottom of your tin because if you don’t, you plant will have a short life.
