Toy Truck Planter

Growing up, the guys around here played with their share of toys, and trucks happened to be a favorite.  Traditionally a lot of the gals played with dolls.  That’s not to say they can’t appreciate a fine looking toy truck however!

It just so happens that various succulents are some of our favorite plants around here too.  They’re great for year round enjoyment inside or outside, and they tend to be really easy to take care of.  No green thumb is really needed for great results.

You can imagine our joy when we actually combined these two things to create a neat presentation piece for around the home.

There’s no real rule here.  Toy trucks just lend themselves to providing a nice bed in the back to hold the plants.  And the older metal trucks our great looking and good choice for this purpose.

It’s not as easy to find these beauties around like you used to.  But be sure to check out antique shops, Goodwill stores, or similar places, including ebay, and you just might find your next planter there!
