Every season I am lucky enough to check my garden center for flowers or plants that on clearance. Often they come in hanging baskets.After the flowers die down you are often left with the pots! A shame to just throw away. RECYCLE!

With these 2 small hanging basket, I will give them a easy transformation.

The baskets were cleaned with soap and water.Dry.

Now ready for spray painting

I love this indoor/outdoor Kryon Paprika. I love that the shade of color screams FALL.

Spray paint, Dry.

I decided to put fun pumpkin faces on them ,made out of adhesive paper(this also can be done with a sharpie or craft paints). I cut out fun shapes. Apply.

To add a little detail, I found these great fall picks at the Dollar Tree(2 in a pack for 1$).

Because its fall/Halloween, these planters got fall mums and moss ,and fall picks for a complete look.

Hanging basket placed on a shepherd hook for display. This look can also be displayed without hanger and used a pot or bucket for Trick or Treat.
