Even while living in Greece I could not keep flowers alive!I mean I could keep an aloe vera plant alive and even a yucca. But that’s about it.
It is the tenth of the month and that means it is time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. We get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less than ten dollars. Last month we talked about Spring but this month we are really looking ahead to container gardening, if and when spring decides to actually spring on us!
And now you are probably laughing because I just told you I am a brown thumb… inching close to black. But that has never stopped me. Today I’m going to show you how to fake a green thumb with this planter box idea!
What I Used:
- 3 galvanized metal planters
- 3 bunches of faux flowers
- 3 small pots with real flowers
- 2 faux vines
- 2 ceramic figurines
The How To:
… went into a larger galvanized planter. One with an oval shaped opening.
The final step was to add my cute little ceramic figurines. They were originally a mustard yellow color but I wanted them a bit more neutral. So I gave them a few coats of chalky finish paint in white.
Just look at the beauty of the Viola.
And just look at the gorgeous shade of the Begonia.
I am a happy camper, to be sure, now that I have a Dollar Tree nearby. Remember back when I lived in Greece and all I did was complain about the lack of nice items at the local dollar store? I had no fall items to speak of when I made a wreath. And let’s not forget the vignette fiasco! Both of these really had me thinking outside the box!
Hop on below and visit my friends who are also going to show you their garden container ideas.
