    Styrofoam planter.

    This is not related to quilting but thought you might like to see what I made using styrofoam containers.All you do is take a wire brush,scratch the outer surface,make drainage holes,spray done.

    Thank you for sharing. It wouldn't freeze in winter either so it could be stored outdoors. Even if it doesn't make it through the winter in great shape, a little more spray should fix it up. 'I have an extra Styrofoam chest sitting around and think I'll try it.!

    How clever of you to come up with such a great idea! I just saw some small ones at the $ Tree . They will work great for my herbs. Thank you!

    Great use of coolers. My allergist gives them away, meds are shipped to him in them. Way too often they throw them out, another great use. Thanks for sharing.
