I miss the smell of fresh baked bread. My mom would pull the loaves of bread out of the oven when I got home from school, so I always got the first crust piece. Nothing beats homemade bread topped with homemade butter.
I found the loaf pans the other day when I was doing some cleaning at the old homestead, and sat and reminisced about days gone by. I knew I had to take those old pans home with me so that my brother wouldn't throw them out with the trash.
So now that I have them home, I am not sure what I will do with them. Fortunately, Giant Jeans Parlor has the perfect suggestion. I can turn those beloved pans into succulent plant holders
Pound a few holes in the bottom of the loaf pans for drainage, plant your succulents
using homemade potting soil
made for cacti and other succulents, and you now have recycled and reused an item that otherwise would sit in the thrift store or landfill for more years than we care to think about.
This is slap-yourself-upside-the-head classic diy. I am having one of those "why didn't I think of this" moments. I love the fact that I can hold on to my memories and still get use out of those old bread pans
. Feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you use in place of expensive planters.
