Garden planter DIY.
With some simple supplies, you can make your own.
Needed: Soil, plants, coffee bags, scissors.
I chose Spearmint here because we use it in one of our most popular summer drinks, The Southern Sparkle!
Coffee shops tend to have leftover waste, just like any restaurant. But with this project, you can turn those used coffee bags, coffee grounds (optional), and burlap bags into something new. Some places will even share them for a small fee! Just ask.
Cut an empty coffee bag (from your local coffee shop) just below the degassing valve. Fold over an inch or two for added stability. Straighten the sides and make sure the bottom is flat before adding soil.
There are lots of great reasons to utilize used coffee grounds in your garden. Find more info here - http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Coffee-Grounds-in-Your-Garden
Remove plant from packaging and loosen the roots. I actually split mine in two sections for multiple planters. Place plant in bag and top with more soil.
When green coffee beans arrive at the roaster, they come in a burlap bag. Roasters go through a LOT of these bags. Some coffee shops and roasters have these bags available for purchase.
They are fantastic for crafting, and make a great finishing touch, for these up-cycled pots!
I couldn't be happier with the way they came out. We have gotten a lot of compliments and the mint plants are thriving!
