What does an avant-garde designer do with heels that have lost a bit of luster?
How about recycle them into super sexy one-of-a-kind planters. These planters carry a story and a name and are created with lots of love by Etsy artist Rachel Mahlke. Each one is handmade and features a truly awesome design or color set. The one pictured above is dubbed the Lemon Tart Stilleto Planter. Loves it!!!
This is a size 7 stiletto heel, upcycled of course into a new life. I removed the top of the shoe, sanded it, drilled holes for drainage, and then planted it with spiky-headed haworthia plants.
This shoe is lime-green-yellow and glows in a blacklight.
The haworthia succulent plants are some of the most undemanding; they’re perfect for those of brown thumb! They’ll do well in an office or a kitchen. Just allow them to completely dry between watering. In return, they’ll repay you with a stark reminder of how hard it is to…well, to be a woman.
