Every household has old shoes and those little ones that the kids grow out of are too cute to throw away! But you may also have a collection of adult shoes too that aren’t good enough for the thrift store. Why not turn your shoes into cute little planters to hold succulents, cacti and houseplants for the winter. These are particularly great gifts for grandparents. Visit indoor plant sections of the garden center or try cacti and succulents because they’re cheap and require so little water the shoes will last forever.
