In the Designer's Words: "Don't trash those nursery flower pots! Turn those utilitarian (aka: ugly) black plastic pots that flowers, bushes and vines come in into some flowery front door decor to brighten up your entrance this spring."

Materials List

  • Plastic nursery flower pots
  • Scissors
  • Exterior paints (spray paints for plastic, or self-etching primer followed by patio paints)
  • Chicken wire
  • Floral wire

Instructions

  1. Using your scissors, cut a slit from top to bottom. About halfway down, begin to cut across the pot. You should end up with two pieces.

  2. Take the bottom part of the pot and cut small, downward slits around the circumference. Fold down these slits to make a flower.

  3. Cut leaf shapes from the remaining top part of the flower pot.

  4. With your pieces cut out, give them a water spray to remove any dirt. Let dry.

  5. Once painted and dried, use craft glue to adhere the leaves to the backside of the flowers. Let dry.

  6. Layout your flowers and cut a section of chicken wire to fit the layout.

  7. Secure the flowers to the chicken wire with small pieces of floral wire.

  8. Insert a ribbon and hang.
