    What great ideas!!! I get tired of the same clay or plastic colored planters everywhere. I could even get the kids involved with the project.

  12. I love this idea. I just became really obsessed with planters and flowers and fake flowers. I been trying to look up cute DIY projects to work on and I think I may take some of your ideas and look through them. They are all very nice & simple/cute.
