      Cheryl Boye Ball I printed the border off of the Internet and the number from Microsoft Word and traced them onto the pot and then painted them by hand.

      What color did you paint the pots? Love it!

      nuala48 Thanks! The flower growth has exploded and are spilling over each layer now. A welcoming addition to my front entrance. I painted the pots with "Anita's All Purpose Acrylic Craft Paint" from Hobby Lobby. I used several coats of #11344 Coffee. The numbers are in "FolkArt #462 Burnt Umber." Lastly, I covered all pots, inside and out, with several coats of Polyurethane.

      Would you share the pants you used?

      Honestly, the inexpensive bottles of craft paint from Hobby Lobby--the colors listed above. Nothing fancy.

      did you use plastic pots or ceramic/terra cotta? Also would you happen to have link where you got the border, I cant seem to find it? Thanks! Can ya tell I love it :)

      I used terra cotta pots. Sadly, I don't have a link to the border. I just looked on Google images until I found a free one that I liked and printed it off my computer.

      Thank you! Ill keep looking :~) Wonder if it would work with plastic?

    9. jsheffer 61 months ago | reply

      I am sure it would work just fine. Just be sure that your paint is made to adhere to plastic.

      So tell me how does that bottle funnel water to the lower plants Have you put multiple holes in it sort of live a sieve so that each layer of plants are nourished by that one "plastic" water bottle, I of course love the idea, just trying to picture how I would get the same effect.

      Hi, I also love this idea. What a classy and cute way to display house No, and so visible for the 911 system. I will certainly give this a try.
      Thank you for sharing!

      What plants did you plant in your flower tower? Thank you!

    13. jsheffer 41 months ago | reply

      I used impatiens since my front porch only receives early morning sun plus a trailing vine in the bottom pot.

      I found plastic different color pots at walmart. I am going to make this with them. I love this!

      I did this and I think it looks gorgeous! I also love your idea of putting your house number below!!!!!!!!! You can get the stickers on Amazon, I saw it on Pinterest and the idea is amazing. I've got a great looking front yard now,
      Thank you!

      I also put some tulips on the top for the top smaller pot and it looks fantastic and they jut out kind of like your top plant does.
      Thanks again!!!!!!!!!! 😊

      I would assume the inside under the 12 inch is another 12 inch. and the inside under the 8 inch is, likewise, another 8 inch.
      Originally saw this on FB with a separate picture that showed the assembly. The other pot is upside down under the one coming up out of it's bottom pot. And the diagram makes them look to be the same size.
