This planter gave my front steps the perfect amount of “oomph” it needed. Not only does it allow me to display a variety of beautiful flowers at the same time, but the pots are so bright and cheerful as well. My neighbors can’t help but smile when they pass by my house now.
– Potting Mix
– One 10″ Pot
– Four 6″ Pots
– E600 Glue
– 36″ Metal Rod (I used a zinc rod found in the plumbing section)
– Spray Paint
Step 1: Paint Your Pots.
I chose this bright blue Rust-Oleum spraypaint for that perfect pop of color!
Step 2: Fill your pot with soil.
Take your 10″ pot and fill it with potting soil. Insert the metal rod into the center of the pot while you fill it to the top with soil.
Continue to push down on the soil to “pack” the soil tightly around the metal rod. Keep packing the soil down as you fill the pot to the top with potting mix.
Step 3: Thread your second pot onto the rod.
Take one of your 6″ pots and thread the metal rod through the bottom base hole.
Step 4: Fill your second pot.
Wedge your smaller pot into the soil, so it sits on an angle. Fill it with soil.
Step 5: Glue the edge of your pot.
Using heavy-duty adhesive (like E600) glue the right outer edge of your second pot. This will be where your third pot lies.
