You don’t have to throw away those cracked or broken garden items.
Here are different ways you can use them.
This mint is invasive, so I like to contain it in pots – or my cracked chiminea.
I paid $1 for this bowl at a yard sale. I think it was worth it. The bowl fits perfectly on top of the chimney from the cracked chiminea. Now I have a bird bath, or a frog bath, but I don’t think frogs can get into it. What do you think?
Speaking of frogs, how about a frog house?
Do you have any frogs? We must have a thousand. I’ve heard if you have frogs, you don’t have snakes. If you had snakes, they would eat the frogs. I like frogs much better than snakes. Don’t you?
If a pot breaks completely in half, lay it on the ground, broken side down. Positioned correctly, it can look like flowers are growing out of it.
It’s the same with this broken boot planter. I like the texture of the pot with the flowers and leaves.
The floppy Black-eyed Susans needed a little support.
A dear friend hand painted this strawberry pot you see peeking out, and it was broken in the tornado of 2011. I couldn’t bear to part with it, so it’s adding color to another pot.
I’m so glad I still have that pot, broken or not. I thank the Lord for this sweet and talented friend who painted the pot for me. She was known in my old neighborhood as “our” Martha Stewart. I wish you could see her beautiful yard!
Maybe sometime I’ll make a road trip to the old neighborhood, introduce her, and snap some pictures of her yard. I’ll keep you posted on that idea. 😉
I hope you’ve been saving your broken pots, waiting for a useful idea to spark.
Do you have other ways you’ve used cracked or broken flower pots? Please share your ideas with me. 🙂
