DIY Disney The Jungle Book Air Plant Holders
Disclaimer: No animals were harmed in the creation of this Disney inspired craft…but maybe plastic ones were.
I’ve been living in a jungle lately. A river of forgotten toys strew my floors. Clothes hang like vines from chairs, beds, and overflow from the hamper. And the animals (AKA my kids) have been swinging into high gear. So it’s no wonder I have JUNGLE on the brain, especially with Disney’s The Jungle Book right around the corner! So I was inspired to make some really WILD looking air plant holders in honor of the new Disney live action movie. Check out how we made these adorable DIY The Jungle Book Air Plant Holders!
What You Will Need:
- Plastic Animal Toys (I used a bear, black panther and tiger – all animals from the movie)
- Air Plants
- Xacto Knife
- After giving your animals a nice pat hello, use the Xacto knife to make some initial holes in your animals. I made holes in the backs of the cats, but since Baloo is more of the comedic relief for the film (I mean c’mon, Billy Murray!), I made a hole in the bear’s head.
- Make sure to place your animals on a solid flat surface. Get out your drill (and let out a Tim the Tool-man Taylor hoot), and continue to drill holes in the animals, deep enough to hold your air plants.
- Use your Xacto knife to clean off any excess plastic shavings.
- Place your air plants in their new homes. I *ahem* used fake plants, because I tend to kill anything green (yes, even plants that need no care….trust me, it’s for the sake of everyone).
- OPTIONAL: You may want to tie around fishing line, rope, etc. and hang your air plant holders too.
So easy, right?! Display your new air plant holders in time for the new Disney’s The Jungle Book, coming to theaters on April 15, 2016! Get in on more Jungle Book fun with these FREE Jungle Book Printables for Kids! Coloring pages, activities and more.
