My back patio has a giant wall that was just SO big and SO plain. I wanted to add visual interest, so I used up some credit I had at Ross and bought 2 metal plaques and this planter.
I also got this little fern at half off at JoAnn's.
I had to modify it so it would fit in the planter. I found the "front" of the fern by turning it around slowly until I liked it best.
I cut directly behind that.
I used my serrated kitchen knife. ;o)
Isn't that what you use your knives for?
I sawed all the way through but the darn thing wouldn't separate!
How was I supposed to know it was all held together by wires?
I just cut through them and we were good.
I stuffed the little piece down into the planter first then the plant.
Here's what the back looks like.
See wall sad. :o(
See wall happy. :o)
I'm so happy with how it turned out.
It's simple, and adds the visual interest I was going for.
That's my kind of makeover!
What are you doing to spruce up your backyard this Summer?
Lots o' love,
