Happy Fourth of July weekend! I am so happy to be home after our “eventful” vacation. To be totally honest, I think I’m happiest at home. Vacations are great and all, but they can be stressful,and totally over rated, too.
So, I’m in the mood for something really easy today, and inexpensive.
How about a $5 Flower Bucket…
This wasn’t planned.
All I was doing was walking through Home Depot looking for toilet paper and this $5 metal pail jumped out at me in the cleaning section. My daughter laughed at me because I was looking at it “oooing” and “ahhhhing”. I knew I could use it for something.
All I needed was some pretty flowers and rope to tie it up.
I had the rope left over from my Crib Mattress American Flag…they sell rope at Home Depot, too.
When I filled the bucket, I was sure to put plenty of pebbles at the bottom of the soil so there was room for the water to drain. I also used liquid miracle grow to get my flowers to grow quickly.
I’m looking forward to the flowers filling it in even more, and I’m also hoping the pail starts to get a vintage look after a few years.
