I've just finished a project!
I've been working on it since Valentine's Day!

I'm calling it my "Happy Feet" pot.

I love the way it turned out.

I purchased this big silver pot from Big Lots for about ten dollars.
The color was not right for this project
and so I repainted it with the same
blue I used on my
"Catbird Garden" sign.

Once again I salvaged these Styrofoam feet from VS.
We had used them in Mukluks
this past Christmas
in our "PINK" shop.

Last year a friend had given us some pillows and fabric.
We used the pillows outside
so I thought the fabric would be perfect for
covering my feet.

I cut the fabric in small pieces.

Then Mod Podged them onto the feet.

I needed to water proof them so...

I applied four coats on "Outdoor" Mod Podge.
Couldn't find this in my town so I
ordered it online.

Now that Spring has sprung I planted my pot.
I used a Crystal Peak Obedient plant,
a Lacrosse Shasta Daisy,
a Blue Daze Evolvulus,
and some Creeping Jenny.

So there you have it.
My "Happy Feet" pot.

Now all I have to do is find
the perfect spot
and show off this little guy.
