When I saw this planter Mandy made. I knew I needed to make one. So I did and I love it. I even gave him a little tie to jazz him up. It seems a little small for the cactus but I backed in some extra dirt. And ta da I have my 4th (sad day) craft project complete for 2012. If you want instructions on how to make your own check out Mandy's Blog Something Monumental here.
PS. Rooster now has the coolest cactus ever decorating his room - I'm sure his roommates are jealous.
