Fun and Easy Projects with Flower Pots

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Fun with Flower Pots Woo hoo! Spring has finally sprung in my neck of the woods! Sooo…all this pretty weather has me freshening up some of my favorite spring projects to use again this year. And…if you are like me and have a stash of flower pots, I have some fun ideas that I would like to share with you.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Chalkboard Flower Pots2_thumb[10] My first project is these cute chalkboard flower pots that I showed you earlier this spring. They are so much fun and easy to make! And with Mother’s Day not too far away, wouldn’t they make a great gift? Just fill with mom’s favorite flowers and finish them off with a sweet message for her! You can find a complete tutorial here.

Staff_thumb[8]Baby Kitty and Ozzie have a suggestion…how about filling one with catnip for your sweet furbabies of the feline persuasion?  Hmmm…I take it that is a hint for me!

044_thumb[20]Here’s another fun flower pot project…my little flower pot man! I have already spiffed him up and gotten him settled in near my patio. Here he is last year sporting creeping Jenny as hair. And the new favorite ‘do for this year? It’s creeping fig! You can find a tutorial for making him here.

Flower Pot WreathIt stayed on my front door all last summer and will soon be headed that way again!

flower pot wreath parts_thumb[5]All you need is a grapevine wreath, flower pots in assorted sizes, twine, floral foam and faux flowers to finish it off. You will find instructions for making it, including flower pot sizes, here.
And there you have it…my ideas for fun ways to use flower pots! And…if you are short on flower pots, I’ll bet that if you head out for the thrift stores and yard sales, you may find that your unsuspecting neighbors have give decided to part with theirs! Enjoy!

  13. Debbie, I hope you'll feel flattered when I steal the idea for your flowerpot wreath and make one for my own front door. I love this so much. (Now wishing I bought that stash of grapevine wreaths at a yard sale a few weeks ago.)
