I was on the lookout for something I could use to put greenery in for the top of my piano. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere. Our nearest craft store is 1 1/2 hours away. With gas prices so high, and me driving a suburban I knew I wouldn't be getting out of my town anytime soon. I went to our only craft store in town, (Walmart) and there was nothing. They didn't even have greenery.
This weekend my kids helped me weed my flower bed for 2 hours so I took them to the dollar store. I saw a plastic planter box there that had some fun design on it. Then the light bulb went off. I can use this planter box as my decorative piece for my piano.
This fun planter cost $1.00. It is actually very sturdy.
I went to Walmart and picked out this fun spray paint. It bonds to plastic really well. I sprayed my planter and let it dry.
I put a floral green sponge thing at the bottom of the box and stuck in some ivy. This ivy was used in my wedding 10 years ago. It is a little dusty, but I thought it turned out great, and it cost less than 5.00 to make.
