Show and Tell

Today my Show and Tell is a quick and easy piece of garden, home or deck art.I found this old beat up frame in the basement of a household sale for 1 dollar.

All I did to the frame was wash it. I couldn't find a plant holder I liked with a flat back so I cut a basket I had with a rust tin cover in two just behind the handle. Then I cut a nursery square pot to fit the basket. I added moss inside to help keep the dirt in. A couple nails and a rust cup hook and you're done.

You can use any style frame depending on the style of your home or deck.
Thanks for stopping by!

For more Show and Tell posts go over to Kelli's House.
