Hey Friends! It’s time for another “decorating challenge”! This month’s theme is “unique planter ideas”…containers, planters, flowers, etc.
I hope you are all having beautiful weather and getting out and about. I haven’t done too much outside yet. (we’ve had nothing but rain, rain…and more rain!) Our temps have been quite a bit cooler than normal too. I’m so ready for the rain to go away for a bit and have some sun, sun, sunny days and warm weather!
Has it been weird this year where you are too?
Anyway, in case you are new here, my decorating friends and I have a challenge each month and we love it when you guys share yours with us too. We have a FACEBOOK group just for you!
You can find it here >>> Decor Enthusiast Style Facebook Group
If you aren’t already a member, we’d really love to have you!
It’s a great place to come and ask advice or share your makeovers, decor, etc. :)
Okay, so here’s what kind of unique planter ideas I came up with….
Pretty unique, huh?
Yea…and it might not work out so well in the long run.
We’ll have to see how they do.
That’s why I put that saying on them. ;)
Sort of telling them…. “bloom where you are planted, y’all”, okay?
It may not be big enough but I’m going to make it work.
This is what happens when my “vision” and my “reality” don’t always meet up in the middle.
I found these at Michael’s……
….and thought, “how cute would these be with those pokey flowers I saw?” Cute, I said! ;)
So I bought them and went to Lowe’s and bought the “pokey” flowers I saw earlier.
Which, by the way, are called “Celosia”.
I looked for the containers above on the website but couldn’t find them. Sorry!
Maybe they are only available in store?
So here’s what I used to create one of my very own unique planter ideas…
I may include some affiliate links below so you are able to find what I used/talked about. You can see my full disclosure here.
Then I just did a quick paint in with my script liner brush and a dark gray paint color.
I didn’t want it to stand out too much. Plus I wanted it to look like it’d been on there a long time.
Probably not very practical, but cute.
I tried them out on the screened porch….
….but decided to put them on the front porch on my (see it here>>>) chalk painted hall tree instead.
That way everyone can see them. :)
The hall tree has been out on my porch for a few years now.
It’s in need of a little touch up here and here.
But I do still love how welcoming it looks out there. :)
PIN this for later if you might want some unique planter ideas too!
