Why not use a sad, discarded ping pong ball or wiffle ball and turn it in to something beautiful!? Or even an old soap refill container. It could be a great gift for a friend or a great way to add life to your cubicle. Something fun to see perched in your window sill... It's so fun to be surrounded by plants. AND I love the idea of using things that are headed for the trash and challenging myself to make it useful. Hope you like these ideas- think twice about things you throw away- you could turn so many things in to a home for a little plant friend of yours.
