diy cupcake planter kitby Ricky Giacco
- the story
This sweet little treat is the perfect, zero-calorie pick-me-up for you or a friend. Rather than a guilt-inducing cupcake, it's a cupcake-shaped planter for indulging in a bit of nature indoors. The planter has the familiar, ridged shape of a cupcake paper, but is cast from a special blend of concrete made from materials that are native to the mid-Atlantic United States. The kit comes with potting soil and a mix of wildflower seeds, but you can also plant your own favorite varieties of flowers, herbs or other seedlings. Made in Pennsylvania.
Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

- the maker
Ricky Giacco is the son of two gardeners, so you could say the seeds were sown early on that he'd grow up to be into horticulture. Ricky loved the idea of making miniature portable gardens, and the containers that would beautify them. His mission is to use locally sourced materials, crafted to create an aesthetic appeal of old world concrete urns, in lighter and smaller styles. He blends of eco-friendly concrete made with recycled products and ingredients native to the region (shells, sand, pine needles, etc.) makes for pieces that are beautiful, durable and lightweight.
