Happy Hour : Pretty Pots for Posies

Please note : First published in July, 2019, I'm rerunning this practical blog. I've got a big home project coming faster than I realized and in the past few days, I've needed to devote my time to it. More on that soon, but in the meantime, enjoy your Sunday!

Summer is a great time to update our potted plants for a fresh look. Terracotta, peat or plastic pots are just begging for a Happy Hour redo. Let's take a look at some easy one-hour ideas.

Glue plastic string around pots and paint in chalk paint.

A variety of graphics update a basic pot.

On-trend message pots - just use a marker.

Inexpensive small peat pots can be bought for under $1 each. Use for seedlings, table top settings, May Baskets. Whether it be terra-cotta, plastic or peat, the sky's the limit to updating inexpensive pots. Hope this gets your creative juices flowing for a fun Happy Hour.
