DIY – Flower Pot Tower

I’ve been wanting to make a flower pot tower for some time, and I finally got around to it.  I was quick pleased with how it turned out and how easy it was to make.  If you’re interested in making your own, you will need the following:

1 piece of rebar or a garden stake (Found at Lowes or Home Depot) 
1 10 inch clay pot
1 8 inch clay pot
1 6 inch clay pot
potting soil
1/2 flat of petunias

Place your rebar into the ground where you will be placing your tower.  Place the largest pot over the rebar. The hole in the pot will be large enough to place the pot over the rebar easily.  Fill the pot with potting soil.  Place the next pot over the rebar and fill with potting soil and than the third. Place petunias around the perimeter of each of the pots and water thoroughly.  Looks like I need to add a few more petunias to the top.  I want it be full.  

If you want to add a 4th or 5th pot, you will need to use a longer stake.  I recommend a garden stake, which can be purchased at your local garden center for a few bucks.  You can cut the stake down once you reach the desired height of your tower.  

You can also spray paint your pots the desired color if you want to a pop to your yard or add a saucer beneath the pots.  Quick and easy project.
