If you read this blog regularly, you may have noticed I love these simple to make wineglass crafts! They make excellent tabletop, centerpiece, and fireplace decor. You can make one, three or a dozen. The colors can vary (well, usually, for this one I would stick with the red, white and blue), and no two wineglasses have to look exactly alike, although they can if that is the look you would like to achieve.

You can see all the different painted wineglass crafts by clicking here. However, if you are in the summer season, this DIY Pineapple Candle Holder is something you may want to consider – or perhaps this adorable (it is one of my favorites!) Love Bug Wineglass DIY.

I have eight wineglass crafts to date ecompassing most holidays or seasons, and the reason is because these painted wine glass crafts are simple to make, fun, and are finished in no time flat. Truly just about any adult can make them.

• Paint the inside of one wineglass blue with your foam paint brush.
• Allow to dry.
• Paint the outside of one wineglass blue with your foam paint brush.
• Allow to dry.

• Note: on any of these painted wineglass decorations if you feel one coat of paint is not enough coverage (even with painting the inside and outside), just allow the first coat of paint to dry completely, then add a second, thin coat for more complete coverage. Allow to dry completely.

• Turn the painted wineglasses upside down.
• Paint four or five red strips around the bowl of each of the white wineglases. Leave white space in between (see photograph). You want it to remind people of the red and white in the flag so: red, white, red, white, etc.
• Allow to dry.
• Paint a second coat of red over the red stripes.
• Allow to dry.
• Note: These shown were done freehand. You may (I did not try it) want to use green frog tape or some other gentle paint-tape to help guide your lines for the red stripes.

How to Make a Watering Can Planter

How to Make a Watering Can Planter. A watering can planter is such an adorable way to keep pretty flowers and fresh herbs nearby at all times. Make a collection of different watering cans for some added whimsy!





How to Make a Watering Can Planter

You will not believe how easy it is to transform a simple watering can into a planter for herbs, flowers, and other small plants. In just moments, transform your boring patio or yard into something amazing with the watering can planter!

This is a great recycle craft (upcycle craft?) if you have an old watering can laying about. You can use a small can (the one in this tutorial is small) a large can, or in-between! One size will be just right to fit on the deck with your patio furniture, inside your house on a windowsill or on the kitchen table, or simply in your garden as part of the garden art and decor!

If you do not have an old watering can handy and would like to purchase one to do this project, stop at your local Home Depot or nearest gardening center for a great selection!

Watering Can Planter Supplies:

• 1 Watering Can
• Drill
• Rocks, Broken Pottery, etc (for drainage)
• Potting Soil
Gardening Hand Trowel
• Small Plants
• Tray (to catch water from watering if this is not set in your garden)

Watering Can Planter Directions:

• Make sure your watering can is free of debris and wash it with soap. If you are reusing an old watering can and had used it to mix with something besides water, this will remove any old residue that may harm your new plants. Not sure which plants to use? Well here are 75 Acid Loving Plants (from slightly acidic to OMG must have acid soil!) and 75 Alkaline Friendly Plants (from slight alkaline soil to very alkaline) to help get you started on your choices. Recognize that most potting soil is going to be closer to neutral, but read the package before deciding!

• Make a drainage hole in the bottom of your watering can using an electric drill (as always, read the manufacturer safety recommendations before using any power tool). This will help you not overwater your plants.
• Place a few rocks, stone, broken pieces of pottery in the bottom of your watering can (without blocking your drainage hole(s). This will also help promote drainage.
• Fill the watering can mostly full of soil.

• That is it! Place your watering can planter in a sunny spot or in the shade depending on what type of plants(s) you chose to grow. Make sure to check your can every day or two to see if it needs water as shallow containers dry out quickly.
• If you keep your watering can planter outside, when frost threatens, just take the watering can planter inside!

This is truly a simple and easy way to reuse old watering cans while adding a touch of garden art to your outdoor (or indoor!) garden.
