It his is a nice little planter with great instructions. I could see adding a red, white and blue crossgrain ribbon around it and perhaps glue some glittery rhinestones to it f some extra bling! This planter would be a nice house or hostess gift when invited to a neighborhood party or very lovely to have on your patio anytime!
