Paint can, drill, digging trowel, potting mix, ready-to-pot plant, fabric, wrapping paper, ribbon or string to decorate.
STEP 2 Turn the can right side up and fill the bottom with potting mix. Press the mix down gently to create room for the plant.
STEP 4 Decorate the can. We made a selection of pots and used assorted fabrics and wrapping paper that we secured in place with ribbon and string.
STEP 3 Gently transfer the plant from its original pot to the can. Press the plant down lightly. Fill up the can with the remaining soil.
STEP 1 Turn the paint can upside down and use the drill to create three small evenly spaced holes at the bottom for drainage.
