Want to see how I added to color to my back yard???
For only .99 cents for each pot!!!
We have a very large back yard and a very small budget …..Ha, so I had to get creative with adding some color.
In less than an hour my daughter and I painted a bunch of these pots and have them all around our patio to add some “Punch” of color.
I found these great terra cotta flower pots at the 99 cents store recently.
Do you ever shop there?? There are some great finds huh???
Yes…for only .99 cents….that’s right.
This is a super fast and easy project and I had my daughter help me paint them too.
I bought some craft paint at Michaels . . . . .you can usually find it for about $1-$2 and they always have coupons too.
We applied two coats of paint and on a 95 degree day it dried in a couple hours. We didn’t tape off as they are going outside and we weren’t going for perfection here.
I bought some pretty flowers at Armstrong Nursery, but if I hit it right some days I will find beautiful little flowers at the 99 Cents store too.
I just put a rock or two in the bottom for some drainage and then used a good potting compost to add in with the flowers.
Now we have two dogs and one is a puppy so if left unattended for too long she will knock them over and do a little digging, so we’re always trying those little tricks to get her to stop digging. If you have any good one’s please leave them in the comments.
So I just planted the pretty flowers and then watered them well.
These pots are great and I have some ideas for some of the upcoming holidays too, so come back and visit again soon.
If you want to take a tour of our back yard, we’ll be doing that tomorrow too.
I’m linking up to Satori Design for Living today. If you have a moment please go on over to her blog as there are loads of fun backyard and flower ideas.
Thanks for stopping by and I’d love any ideas you have too. Lisa
