I carefully watch at Lowe’s and Home Depot for their spring foliage. As soon as it makes an appearance I’m there, filling up my shopping cart! I am just thrilled with how this tiered terracotta planter turned out, and it has received so many comments from friends who stop by the house. This project was inspired by one from the talented Amy over at Positively Splendid.
How to Make a Tiered Planter
I had some old pots that I spray painted a couple of coats on. I also added a clear coat to seal them. Then I stacked them using bricks to raise each pot a bit.You could use vinyl, but I painted my address numbers right on the front. I made a stencil with contact paper and my cricut. After I painted the numbers, I gently peeled the contact paper away.
