Tiny 3D-Printed Planters You Can Wear on Your Clothes or Attach to Your Bicycle

Colleen Jordan says that her colorful 3D-printed creations are “jewelry for green thumbs,” and they take the form of tiny planters to wear or display on your bike. Using succulent clippings or fresh-cut flowers, you place them into the miniature vases and dangle them around your neck, affix them to your lapel, or strap them to a chrome handlebar. The whimsical result is a unique, ever-changing way to display nature.

Jordan creates all of her planters in modeling software and then has them printed in acrylic nylon. Afterwards, she hand-finishes each piece to ensure a smooth appearance and texture. The material is watertight, so you can actually plant a tiny sprout to cultivate and watch grow. If you lack gardening prowess, however, Jordan has created helpful inspirational guides.

All the adorable planters are sold through Jordan's popular shop, Wearable Planter. Find her entire selection on Etsy.

Jordan also sells non-wearable planters:
