upcycled creamery containers April 18, 2016 // by Betsy Thompson Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Your Name* Your Email* Your Friend's Email* One of our favorite ways to up-cycle creamery containers is to turn them into little planters. They're the perfect size for a desk or windowsill and are a vibrant addition to any coffee table. Here's how we did it: Fill the bottom of a Vermont Creamery aged cheese crate or cultured butter basket with dried moss or grass, being sure to line open slats. Arrange small succulent assortment above the moss or grass and fill in remaining space with cactus or succulent soil mix. Top with preserved moss or small stones.
