Early in spring this year, Spunky Daughter (SD) planted some seeds I shared with her. She bought clay pots and grew herbs in her bedroom window – the only window at their apartment that gets enough sun.
Last month, we transplanted everything into larger planters – along with some flowers SD had bought. I kept her clay pots and cleaned them with an idea in mind. After deciding to keep the moss floramat that I didn’t use for the moss spheres, my idea expanded.
I planned to simply paint the pots with SD’s choice of chalk paint colors.
But when I decided to add the moss, I left the pot rims unpainted.
Remember when I showed you the floramat that comes in a roll? You can buy it at Wal-Mart and probably Hobby Lobby, as well.
I cut it into strips and glued it around the pot rims with glass & bead glue. Why glass & bead glue? Because I didn’t think school glue or hot glue would hold up outside in wet weather, and glass & bead glue was the only other glue I had on hand.
So far so good, but it hasn’t rained on them yet.
I guess time will tell….
Have you seen enough moss for a while? I think I’ve reached my moss limit for now.
I do need to warn you. I’m showing these pots in tomorrow’s tablescape post. But after that, you’ll probably never see them again – unless I happen to take pictures of the flowers planted at the apartment.
In case you’re interested, Wal-Mart has clay pots on sale for a dollar…until supplies last.
Do you like the moss addition enough to make some of your own? Or do you like the plain painted pots better?
