It is kind of hard to see, but there are two planters, one smaller one put inside another larger one- each pot painted a different color. I like DIY crafts, and this one is so very easy. But it's kinda weird for me. I don 't understand the reasoning behind this- putting two pots into one. Perhaps I am over-thinking things. I also don't see the burlap ribbon anywhere on there. Great idea for lots of folks!

If you are looking for that something special to put on your front porch that also serves a purpose then why not check out this video of the house number planter. This is so creative and adds some beauty with the plants. You can change the flowers out too and if you do not want your house number on it put a saying. Very cleaver project.

We have three steps on our apartment stoop and this would be a cute decoration to show the apartment number. I plan on placing a single digit (25A) on a single pot and stair stepping them on the steps. My intentions are to slip a seasonal plant in the pot verses planting them. I can use this all year long.

This project will add curb appeal to the front of your home. The designer used terra cotta pots but I guess any pot will do for this project. Changing out the plant for the seasons will allow you to use the planter all year long.
