Easy Hanging Flower Pots


I wanted some hanging flower pots on my back porch.  It just can get so expensive buying the pre-made flower pot.  So I decided to make our own with my children.  It turned out to be a lot of fun and a whole lot cheaper.
I picked up the pots at Dollar Tree.  They were only $1 per pot.  We also went to Lowe's and I had my children pick out the flowers they wanted to plant.  They loved picking out their own!  We also bought some soil to plant in. 
It cost me about $4-5 per flower pot.  We made a HUGE mess planting, but my children LOVED it!
Having flowers hanging make such a huge difference in our backyard!  It makes me want to go out there all day!

Love it! I found the trick to making flower pots flourish is to water them Every Day. Good luck!

I have been wanting some hanging pots, too, but the price has kept me from buying because I have a wrap-around porch! I never even thought about the dollar store having pots (duh moment!)! Thanks for posting!

This is such a good idea! I never buy the hanging pots, they are just to darn expensive. I'll have to try this though. Thanks for sharing at Terrific Tuesdays.
