There are many ways to use photos around your home, and this one combines two seemingly incongruous things — great family portraits and Chia Pets, or rather house plants! Get your little ones interested in indoor gardening with funny photo planters!

Although this idea is from a Russian marketing and design firm and isn't a product for purchase, we think these are great fodder for a diy project.

Since we now know you can make large print outs on the cheap, you could make black and white versions to wrap around your pots and if you don't like the idea of the outer plastic shield that protects things, you could simply use good old Mod Podge to adhere your print to the pot. Another option would be a large color print out and although they aren't always the least expensive option, quite often you'll find coupons online.

We think the idea is super fun and is sure to produce smiles. You can check out more photos of this project over at Good.
