It's no secret that I've been trying to work on the curb appeal for our home. I've mentioned it a few times, here and here. No real reason other than, we have been slacking on the yard...for a few years now. Come to think of it; ever since we got the boat. I mean, really....who wants to be working in the yard on a sunny day when you could be out playing on the water? Am I right, people?
I have been wanting to do a fun project for the front yard, for a long while now. I was missing one major piece to this project, and when I was cleaning under the deck the other day I stumbled across my missing piece. I was so excited that I may, or may not, have done a little dance. Right there. In the backyard. Under the deck.
We've all seen the stacked flower pot towers right? Well, THAT's what I wanted to make.
Here is what you will need. Remember, you will need a few days to let the spray paint cure.
5 terra cotta pots, various sizes. (Large to small)
Outdoor paint or spray paint
1 piece of re bar (Approx. 3 feet)
Step One: Spray paint your pots. I like working in odd numbers, so since I already had 3 colors at home from other projects, I used those.
Step Two: Let paint dry (hardest thing for me to do....ever)
Step Three: Add a second coat of paint and let dry...again
Step Four: Hammer your re bar into the ground for a good amount. You don't want the re bar or the tower to wiggle around at all
Step Five: Let the fun begin! Add your pots, very carefully, through the hole in the center of the pots
Step Six: Add potting soil into your base pot. This will help you next pot, sit on it.
Step Seven: Start adding the pots and tilt them when you slide them down the re bar. They will then sit on top of each other
Step Eight: Add potting soil and your plants in the next 4 pots
Step Nine: Add the littlest pot on the top. You could even add a fun yard orb if you didn't want flowers or plants on the top.
This project cost me, approx. $18, the re bar was my missing piece that I ended up finding in my backyard.
Now, sit back and admire your fun little yard project! I just love the way this tower brings a pop of color to my front yard. I can't wait to get more projects completed!!
And one more, because I just LOVE this little Flower Pot Tower so much!
