Let's talk planters.
They are expensive.
Like 50 dollars expensive.
I'm talking the tall ones here. Yes, I know they do go on sale but I wanted 2...right away.
That's like 100 bones, and let me tell you I can find a better way to spend 100 dollars then on two large objects that sit at my front door as a decoration.
So today, I'm sharing a way to have your cake and eat it too ! Or, in this case, your tall planters.
I made these puppies for a grand total of 8 dollars.
I love the Dollar store. It's like Christmas every time I go in that place - seriously they have new stuff every week and it excites me.
I found these large planters for 2 dollars each.
They aren't a pretty color, but nothing a little spray paint can't fix.
Please ignore the horrible cell phone picture I'm about to show you.
I had a greyish/silver color in my spray paint stock that I decided to use.
The beauty of these are that you get to pick your color. I thinking I may even switch them to a bright color in the near future.
Shhh, don't tell my Mr.
So, I gave them a coat of paint glued them on top of each other using some liquid cement.
You could really use any type of glue that bonds to plastic.
Fill them with your choice of plant and voila !
You've got yourself 2 new tall planters for less than a quarter of the price of a store bought one.
Check out mine on my front step - not too shabby right ?
Hope I've inspired you to make your own - Have a great day everyone !
