Another gardening idea

Okay, the upside down tomato plant is all the rage around here. I see them everywhere. And surprise, surprise, they are rather expensive. I love fresh grown tomatoes as does everyone I know, but PUHLEEASE! No way am I buying this overpriced item. We want THRIFTY!!!

Once again, we are here to make it ourselves out of normal everyday things we generally throw away.

Before I even start talking about how to make these, let's just get this part out of the way. Get creative with your hanging pots. Paint them, make fabric covers that you can take off and wash if you want, decoupage different things to them. Add dangely crystals or beads if that is the look you want. Just make them reflect your style.

There are unlimited items you could use. 2 liter soda bottles, juice bottles, small plastic trash cans, plastic childrens buckets, small laundry baskets, your old beat up plastic bowls....tons and tons of ideas.

I'm going to link you to a really cool site that has many ideas about these upside down hanging pots. They don't all look pretty, but that part is up to your imagination!

So check these out!

Like I said, the ideas are endless. Just get creative and have fun!
