I love finding inexpensive things to redo or repurpose. I would much rather reuse something than send it to the landfill. My project today is so simple I hate to say it’s a makeover.
Well Loved Bucket Makes A Cool Flower Pot
I picked up this bucket for $4. Now some folks would just look at it as an old dinged up bucket. I look at it as a well loved treasure!
The bucket was already worn through in a few places. I could see some pin holes of light when I was checking it out. The JTS drilled four drain holes. We don’t want drowned flowers. I have a hard enough time keeping plants alive as is. Ya’ll do notice I’m not a garden, plant, or flower blogger??
I purchased the flowers at Home Depot. Don’t ask me what kind they are. All I know is I like them. It’s Mum season but I’m not really a big Mum fan. I will have a few for Fall decorating because let’s face it….they give a lot of bang for the buck.
I added a lot of potting soil to the bottom of the bucket then tucked in the flowers. That bucket sure was heavy. I forget how much dirt weighs.
I added the burlap ribbon just because. The bucket didn’t really need anything else but who doesn’t like a little burlap.
I’m thinking of making a small sign with our house numbers to add to the bucket. Maybe I’ll stencil a design on the bucket too. We’ll see. Thanks for being here, Kathy
