Monday Make Itz

Upcycled Metal Watering Can Planter

My dad had purchased an old fashioned metal watering can from an old fashioned
type of hardware store. It was a gift for us to use on our many flowers.
Somehow when we moved to Wee Acres, the end of the spout got broken.
Being from my dad, I didn't want to just 'recycle' the metal,
so I upcycled it into a planter. I even filled it with a beautiful plant from his service.

1. Poke holes in the bottom for drainage. I used a hammer and a large nail.
2. Place rocks in first for drainage and weight.
3. Add potting soil.
4. Place plant into potting soil.
5. Use fertilizer infused water to soak the transplant.
