Member Spotlight: Melanie's Pretty Flowerpots
When we were browsing through photos the other day, we were so excited to see a member who submitted a very unique and inspiring craft idea. Miss Melanie, we loved your pretty tilted flowerpots that we couldn’t resist from featuring them right here on today! Take a peek below at Melanie’s fabulous garden creation and read the DIY steps to create one of your own…

Here’s what you will need:

  • 1 large garden pot
  • 1 fence dropper, 1.8 meters long
  • 2 medium garden pots
  • 6 small garden pots with holes in the bottom
  • 6 different colored pansy flowers (or any seedlings of your choice)
  • 3 different colored Mesembryanthemum plants (or any other flowers of your choice)
  • 1 bag of potting soil compost
  • 1 bag of small pebbles
  • ½ bag of river sand


  1. Place a small amount of the pebbles in each of the pots. Use the pebbles to secure the fence dropper in the bottom of the large pot.

  2. Feed the fence dropper through the holes in the bottom of the small pots and place them on top of the other along the fence dropper. Mix the compost and potting soil together and pour it into each of the pots.
