Sprucing Up Foam Planters
As I was thinking about creating a container for the May Lowe's project, I decided to spruce up these as well.
So I painted them! Doesn't it look like a concrete planter? So much better! I had searched the internet and even Pinterest to see if I could find out how to paint them. I saw very little information so I had to experiment. Here is what I did, just in case you have one in need of painting too.
euonymus, I believe it is 'Emerald 'n Gold', in the planter. It is a fabulous plant for a large container! It was becoming a bit unruly in my garden so last fall I dug it up and put it in the container. It is evergreen and during the winter had a lovely blush of pink on the leaves!
I left it in the container when I painted and just wrapped it in a bungee cord to lift it up. Easy, peasy project!
