Hose Pot Without the Hose Pot Price!
I crafted my flower pot tower earlier this summer. I loved the look but hated the curled hose at the base. It just looked ugly, and it ruined the look! The cheapest hose pot I could find that was attractive and not plain was $50! I didn't want to spend that much, because I have a hose at the front and at the back. No, I'm not spending $100 just to hide hoses. So I put my crafter hat on and bought two large pots at the local home improvement store for $10 each! Check out the results below. MUCH better!
Begin by buying two plastic flower pots that are to your liking. I drilled drainage holes in the bottom to start, so that water doesn't pool in the bottom and can drain out.
Then, using a drill bit that will drill a hole, drill one in the back side of your pot large enough to let your hose slide through easily with some room to spare. In my case, that was 1 1/4". I already had the drill bit from another project.
Then feed the hose through the hole and wind the hose inside the pot avoiding kinks. That's it! All for $20 for two and $80 in savings!!!!
