It’s Spring! We’re So Excited We Wet Our Pants!

If you know me, you know I love to get creative!¬†Here’s another project of mine that I wanted to share with you! I got this fun and imaginative idea from one of our customers. (Thanks again Michelle!)

Here’s how I made my funky blooming pants:

  • I first purchased some rubber boots, then screwed metal rods through the boots and bolted them onto sheets of plywood.
  • I then proceeded to fill the boots with fast drying concrete and purchased a few pairs of jeans, which I then painted with Mod Podge fabric stiffener.
  • After applying several coats of fabric stiffener, I hung them to dry.
  • Once hardened, I placed them over metal rods and filled the pelvic area with quick drying foam.
  • I then carved out the excess foam in order to fit a coco liner, jazzed up the jeans with fun accessories and planted a variety of blooms. Voil√†!

We’re so passionate about plants that we even put them in our pants!
