Galvanized metal planters are very popular in farmhouse decor. Dollar Tree has several styles for $1 each.
There are posts online on how to rust them, paint them, decorate, and age them.
How to Easily Age Inexpensive Planter, Little House of Four
I had orignally thought I would just add simple jute to my little Dollar Tree pot, but then I had a different idea. Several weeks ago in my wandering online, I saw a photo on a magazine of decorated flower pots. I couldn’t forget one of them. This is my attempt to decorate a simple galvanized pot. The words on the pot – Flowers & Garden are my inspiration. Nothing hard or time consuming as I just added leaves and flowers.
I took some green leaves off an old bunch of dollar store flowers. I removed the plastic and cut the leaves into green strips. I want my pot to show a generalized view of a garden.
Then I removed two flowers from a dollar store bunch of flowers. Each flower is composed of 4 little flowers.
I cut each little flower off and glued it to the pot on greenery.
It’s a simple little craft but I like the look of my metal flower pot with a little farmhouse charm. I’ll look at the garden department next week for a small plant to put in it.
Right now I’ll just add faux flowers.
I put my arrangement on a side table with my little wooden pelican.
