The Topsy Turvy Flower Planter
This project is fun. It’s also great for small gardens or homes that don’t have a garden. With a few modifications, you can make this artsy project water-efficient too. To do this project, you need several pots or buckets. You can paint them first. A fun thing to do is to get different types of pots, and paint them all the same color. You can also get the same types of pots and paint them different colors. You can also use varying pot sizes. You need to use either rebar or a metal pole to secure the pots. If you’re going to use buckets, you’ll need to drill holes in them first. Anchor your pole or rebar in the ground, or use a large planter inside your home to ensure the pole will not fall over with the weight of the pots. Feed the rebar through the holes in the pots, and stack your pots on top of one another in alternating directions. After you place soil in the pots, the soil will help to keep the pots in place. To increase efficiency, drill small holes on the bottom of the pots so that water can drain into the lower pots.

Use dark gray or black paint on them first if they’re naturally a light color. Be sure to write down the name of your plants on the rocks too. Place your rocks at the end of each row.
