    When using these for plants always keep drainage in mind..you can drill a tiny hole in the bottom and put small rocks in...they are a beauty!

    I've used chipped, cracked pottery pieces for this, too.

    Funky Junk, I would think you could put a few pebbles in the bottom of an undrained pot w/maybe a little charcoal, and that would keep the plants moist but not wet, and the soil from souring.

    Now we need a good creative way to use lids.
  • Haha Alice, agreed! Thanks for the drainage tips, everyone! I'll do that next year. :)

    Cute idea. I've used some oddball containers for various plants also and love looking at others creative ideas. I think my most unusual one was a bedpan on my bathroom wall.

    Cool idea. I have done this with old fashion milk can covers on my front steps

    Really eye catching way to display your herbs. I love my herbs. I have collected some inexpensive silver plate pieces (nobody wants silver plate anymore). I don't worry about polishing because I like the patina as is. I put large pebbles in the bottom

    Funky J., do the lids have knobs? If so, why not mount those on a plaque and use it to hang things from?
  • Love that Idea Becky!

    Alice..maybe we could convert the lids into a wind chime...

    Maybe lids could be used as saucers for them in some fashion. Very good idea for containers. Think I'll go check out the basement.
