This month we are going to work on gardening projects. You know things that grow!
Do I hear you laughing? I’m sure I do, because I am famous for my brown thumb.
I am going to show you what household items I re-purposed as planters – for the plants, you know the ones that are supposed to grow!
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
As many of you may know I am pretty hopeless when it comes to gardening. But for the sake of my good friends at the Int’l bloggers Club, I thought I’d give this a try.
I also had another motive. I wanted to do a vignette, cause there is no way I am going to grow anything and have it see the light of day. And the vignette would have all sorts of repurposed items that were going to go bye-bye at a yard sale. Since I believe in giving everybody and everything a second chance, they would instead get a new life as planters.
What I used:
- Various neglected ceramic items such as cups, a sugar and creamer set, and a ceramic swan
- Plants that will not dies soon (fingers crossed on that one)
- One vine plant because I’m feeling brave
- One elephant ceramic
How It’s Done:
Should I also put it in a bigger pot after a while? Any help is welcome.
And its’ other half, the creamer… another succulent but in a different color.
Lastly, because we need balance I stuck a yellow daffodil in a spice jar.
…but I also got to re-purpose all those ceramic containers that would certainly have ended up in my yard sale.
