Terra Cotta Garden Pot Trees ~

Diana Wearing
by Diana Wearing
I love aged terra cotta pots ~ no reason to let them sit empty all winter they make great trees!
I cleaned the dirt out, most of it anyway :) ~ the trunk is an upright pot and then it’s just trial & error to see which pots fit & sit straight ~ Easy!
I love the natural patina of aged pots but you could paint them if you like ~ moss pots would look awesome too!
No pots were injured in the making of these trees ~ they’ll be ready for planting in the spring :)

    I think that is a very good idea to make use of "used" pots. I love the idea that you don't throw them away but re/use them. Green thumb thank God!

    I also if some get broken, pieces can be used as pavers for fairy gardens, etc
