Creative Container Garden Ideas


How Whimsical is Your Container Garden? If the answer is “not too whimsical,” and you’d like to change that, well I have the posts for you! There weren’t as many entries to this month’s blog carnival as in carnivals past, but the posts that were submitted are the creme de la creme. The topic was whimsy, and the ideas out there for making your container garden more fun and lively are really fantastic. Without further ado…

Whimsical Containers

  • Stenciled Chalkboard Pot – Sew Hip Mama has made one of the most stylish hand painted pots I’ve seen. I could totally see her pot idea being used as a gift, and writing the “to/from” info in chalk along the rim.

Fun Garden Ornaments
