Other Uses for Terra Cotta Pots

 


Hello, I am back!

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 
Mother's Day!


Do you use Terra Cotta pots when
planting in the Spring? Do you have
a plethora of
them?

Here are some ideas for uses of the
over flow.

Build a cake stand:
Glue a 10" saucer to the bottom of a
4" pot. Spray paint a fun color and
seal with clay pot sealer.

Container for just cleaned produce:
Place your fresh picked produce in
the pot, wash, rinse and let drain.

Garden Tool Storage:
Fill pot with sand, place tools inside
pot. They will be at your ready when
you need one.

Paint project elevator:
Balance wood or trim on two pots, as
you paint the sides will easily accessible.

Make a twine dispenser:
Place a ball of twine/string in the pot.
Thread one end through the drain hole
to prevent tangles.
**I like this idea but the pot sits on the
twine/string, I would thing it would be
hard to get the length of string you need
without having to move the pot around.


Did you know?
Terra Cotta, the most common type of
flower pot is Italian for "Baked Earth."


There you have it new uses for those extra
pots.

    1. I think if you were o put the string on the "plate" that the pot normally sit on then turn the pot over with the string coming out of the top that would work.

  3. Good ideas! I'll be filling one with sand soon for garden tools. Still can't plant here for another couple of weeks, I've been burned a couple of times planting too early and had to do it all over again after a late heavy frost. Thanks for the ideas!

      Spring itself now that it is here has been fine except for
      the intense allergies.
