Adorable 3D-Printed “Wearable Planter” Keeps Nature Close By

As the temperatures rise and flowers come back in bloom, it's clear that spring is officially here. And, what better way to celebrate than with Colleen Jordan's Wearable Planter! The unique accessories are miniaturized vases and decorative containers that hold sprouts, succulents, and small flowers. Wear them around your neck, as a pin, or even clipped to your bike. It's a great way to carry a bit of nature with you all day long.

To produce these adorable planters, Jordan first designs them using modeling software and then 3D prints them in nylon. Finishings like leather and silver chains are applied to them afterwards. Each piece is watertight and translucent, meaning you can see the roots or bottom of the plant.

These charming creations are all available in Jordan's Wearable Planter Etsy shop. She offers a number of colors and styles, and they're sure to appeal to botanical lovers of all kinds.
