We FINALLY got the funnel planters done that we started in March!!
I may have mentioned that we found some super cool old funnels at the flea market on the way home from my folks a couple months back. I was wanting to replicate some funnel planters that I had seen in a garden magazine.
First we took a couple old funnels. Any size will do, but I chose the largest ones I could find. .because I needed enough dirt in the things that they didn't dry out in an hour here in "hot and windy land."
I let Jeremy punch holes in the top of this one. .it was cheap and not too fancy.
And in this one went an airplane house plant.
We hung them both up this evening on the back porch. The magazine photo had a group of about 5 hung together. .and if the wind doesn't blow at your house. .it was sure cute that way. At MY house, we had to make sure that if the wind was blowing REALLY hard. .as it is prone to do. .that they wouldn't hit each other, or the house. .we ended up hanging them on separate ends of the small entry porch. This door faces the east. .so the wind is less. .and so is the hot sun! A perfect place for some of my other house plants!
One of my favorite hobbies is taking TRASH to TREASURE!!
Stay tuned. .we also had time to work on my other trash project tonight. .and hope to have it turned into treasure by the end of the weekend!!
Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
