Repurposed Tea Kettle


If the tea kettle fits.  Use it.  Re-use it.  Repurpose it.  Like me.

How do you like this little “Repurposed Tea Kettle”?

Pansy Kettle

I hoard go through a lot of tea kettles.  I keep 0ne on my cooktop, and it tends to get splashed with food so they all get crappy looking from all of the wiping.  When my tea kettle is dirty, it makes me feel dirty.  My stove can be filthy, but if that tea kettle is sparkling, all is fine at my house.

So, I hide the extra ones I’m not using up on my pantry top shelf.  You should see them.  They are all lined up like a tea kettle parade.

I promised myself recently that I would start “de-cluttering”.  I had the tea kettle by the stairs to go down into the basement where I am collecting all of the garage sale merchandise, but it never made it.

Blue Tea Kettle

I noticed the Pansies at the grocery store and new that the bright yellow blooms would look so cute in the bright cobalt blue tea kettle.  There really isn’t any secret to this.  I didn’t add anything to the tea kettle except the pansies and some water.  Pansies enjoy sun and shade so I placed it on my front porch where they will receive both.

If you want to make your own Pansie Tea Kettle, try the thrift store for tea kettles first.  I see them there a lot.  If you REALLY want one like mine, here’s an affordable one I found: COBALT BLUE TEA KETTLE.

    If you found a tea kettle at the thrift store that you liked but was the wrong color for this project, you could spray paint it. I love duct tape, WD-40 and spray paint! LOL

    Thank you for more inspiration! I love the cheerful flowering teapot. I have an old cast iron one that I have kept tucked away for years wondering how I could repurpose it. Well now I know! My gratitude to you again!

    Such a bright perky bouquet of pansies. Wonderful idea to use that stunning tea kettle as a pot.

    Hi Carol, Your pasies in the tea kettle look adorable. Yellow and blue…….perfect!
    I was at the store (Home Depot) a few days ago and bought 2 pots of beautiful purple panies. I’ve been collecting for
    years. I must have a tea kettle of some sort out in my garage. Sounds like fun. Thank you.

    I’ve used tea kettles and other odd things as planters..but pansies in the summertime?? OH, no. Those are cool weather bedding plants. Think petunias or calibrachoas…better yet plant marigold or nasturtium seeds.

      Whatever you feel best using, Nancy, sounds wonderful. The concept is to have an open mind. My pansies did beautifully for weeks. Yeay!
