I just moved into a new loft in mid-August, and I’m excited because I have a balcony. It’s kind of wide and long, and it’s perfect for a few chairs, a table and then some potted plants. Looks like it’s time for some Fall gardening, wouldn’t you say? I wanted to do a small container garden, but I can’t just throw containers out there – that would be so wrong. So I Mod Podged some.
Gather These Supplies
Pots – any kind, clay works as well
Mod Podge Outdoor
Scissors or way to cut paper into shapes (I used my Sizzix Big Shot)
Buttons or other embellishments
I ran the scrap paper through my Sizzix Big Shot. You can do the same thing, but you can also just cut shapes with your scissors if you don’t have a fancy machine.
Place some Mod Podge down onto the pot and add your shapes on top. Smooth them out and let them dry for 15 minutes.
Give the entire pot a few coats of Mod Podge to seal.
I couldn’t really stop there, so I used some buttons around the edge as accents. Just use craft glue.
Here are my pots all finished! Now, what to plant in them?
Miracle-Gro actually has the solution for fall planting woes. A lot of people, including myself, have no idea that there are plenty of beautiful plants to use in the fall. Find beauty in the Fall with their plant finder, which you can use by region (depending on where you are in the country). Looks like for my neck of the woods, vegetable flowers are the way to go. Who knew? I’ll be using Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for my fall plants. It feeds the plants for up to six months, which I need, because my thumb is green but with a bit of brown (is that hazel?).
