Repurposed Soda Pop Planters

Do you remember our repurposed water bottle flowers? Here is a look just in case you do not.

 Well they only take the top portion of the bottle leaving us with a nice little container . Like this:

So we painted them up with some chalkboard paint.  Like this:

It only took one coat of paint to cover. I just brushed it on with one of the sponge type paint brushes.

Now we just need some soil and seeds and we can write on the front with chalk what we have started.

You could also leave them clear or paint a cute design on them. I like being able to write what they are with chalk though!
