I was really enticed to grow a few of my own herbs. So I dug around in my junk stash and there, staring right back at me was my old kettle collection. Perfect!
After layering the pots with stones and soil, in went the plants. But they're topped with something that makes them even cooler to look at... read below for how I did it.
My kettle inspired mobile garden is FUN to move around! And eat. :)

How cute is this collection of old kettles for a kitchen themed herb garden?

I love to collect these guys from the thrift stores. Even if they're broken.

After the plants go in, I layer the tops of the soil with spanish moss. It offers a fun, rustic touch!
Do you collect kettles too? What do you do with yours?

    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.

    I've been collecting old and mostly copper colanders to use as planters. The holes are great for drainage as well as adding some spiffy hanging wires! So much better than spending $20+ on a pot from a big box
