Funky friends

While we were at therapy today I went to visit with the outdoor adventure group but sadly they were gone, probably outdoors! On the table outside the front door sat this, probably one of their latest projects. I loved them, they all looked like they were happy to see me. Being earthday, I thought that it was a perfect way to recycle old socks into cute new pots. Adding the buttons and faces made them even more special. I am sure it was a project for the kids, but I think I will be going home to dig through my husbands socks to make some new friends for my garden. I am thinking they would be so cute placed around my garden, planted with grass seeds, like hair. It seemed like they filled the socks with potting soil after sewing on the button faces and then tied the end shut. They then cut a small hole into the top of the socks to plant them. Most of them seemed to have some sprouts coming out of their heads! LOL They were sitting in a plastic, recycled container to help with the water not just pouring out all over. The ones in front, which you can't see very well, seem to be fish! LOL They are so cute, not pretty but clever. I love it when I am creatively surprised.
