Kitchenware as Repurposed Planters



                                                                                     



                                           I don't know but it seems all garage sales, tag sales,

                                             yard sales and estate sales have one thing in common.

                                                                Tons of  KITCHENWARE !

        I want to share a couple of fun pieces to turn into planters.
 
                                                 First I found an aluminum colander for .50

                                                          These are so useful in the garden.

                                    I use one to carry fresh vegetables and herbs to the house.

                                             Then it is easy to rinse and clean your veggies.

 
I had a Coco Liner on hand from The Dollar Tree. You can
 
line the sides and bottom with moss if you prefer.
 

It was a pretty good fit !
 
They can be trimmed with scissors.
 

                            I used Patio Potting Mix and purchased one small pot of Petunias.
         
 
 
Less mess if I do it on the grass!
 
 
 
 The Colander on the left has succulents that I planted in the Fall
 
 
The other pan was an old Jello Mold for .50
 
 
I used the same Potting Mix.
 
I know there is special potting soil for succulents but it is expensive and I have
 
had good results with the Patio Mix.
 
I will only water the wreath with a spray bottle.
 

                                                    I just used cuttings from my backyard.
 
For this project you will only need a small amount
 
of cuttings. If you don't have access to
 
cutting, ask friends and neighbors to save you some.
 
Hey ask your Mom or Grandma !
 
Gardeners love to share.
 

 
I used a stick to poke holes in the dirt.
 
Gently press stems into the holes and tap down dirt around plant. 

Mist with a spray bottle.
 
As the plants establish you can give your wreath a tilt if you like.

Trim to keep the shape.
 
 

I brought it in the house and added a candle.

Have a Wonderful Day !

  6. Oh my, so pretty! Love how you are using the candle in the mold and using the succulents in it. Glad you told us how to water it too. I would probably drown them.
