HOW TO MAKE A SUCCULENT PLANTER OUT OF A TYPEWRITER
There's no reason to ruin a perfectly good typewriter by putting dirt in it and watering the poor thing! There's a better way to repurpose a typewriter into a planter! Same look. Less guilt.
First, you need to find an old typewriter (can be found at thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, or Grandma's attic).
Then purchase some faux succulents (JoAnns, Michaels and Amazon are good places to find them).
Trim succulent stems to set in the cavity of the typewriter correctly (mine had freakishly long stems).
You can simply wedge them between the typebars to secure them in place (the long metal bars that fly up and strike the paper).
Or cut some florist foam to fit in the typebar cavity to stick the stems into.
Sit back and freak out your friends who think you killed a classic typewriter!
