This DIY flower pot fountain is beautiful and budget-friendly. With a $20 fountain pump kit, Jordan Grantham of The Happy Homebodies used two terra cotta pots and river rock to create a Tuscan-inspired design for a deck. Note that this fountain must be placed near an outdoor electrical outlet in order to run.
Ryan Benoit and Chantal Aida Gordon of The Horticult threaded stainless steel rods through terra-cotta pots and suspended them from horizontal surfaces. These striking vertical gardens can punch up the smallest balconies and patios.
Use paper towels to gently wipe off the paint, creating the whitewashed look. Depending on how “washed” you’d like your pots to appear, you can continue wiping the paint off until you get the shade you are looking for. Allow pots to dry before adding plants.
