One of my favorite things to do in the spring and summer is garden. I love growing as many flowers and vegetables as my little yard can handle. So, just when my yard is ready to burst, I start filling up my assortment of pots and planters. At the end of each summer, I am thankful that I had the chance to enjoy each and every plant that I potted up.
Now that summer is winding down, many of my plants are starting to look pretty tired. Every few days I find a potted plant that just isn’t going to spring back to life. I always feel a little guilty when I empty the pot out. I feel like I should be able to keep the plant thriving. Unfortunately, some plants just have a very limited lifespan and bloom time.
After I empty my pots, I wash them with dish soap and spray them with a water and vinegar solution. When they have completely dried in the sun, I store them in my garage until next summer. As I looked at all of my pots lined up in the sun, I decided to keep a few out and put together this flowerpot windchime craft.
Most importantly, I knew I would be hanging my wind chimes outdoors, so I wanted to make sure it was weather resistant. I used Plasti Dip Craft Spray to coat the pots in a durable rubber coating. Plasti Dip is an air-dry, specialty rubber coating that is compatible with over 50 colors and enhancers, including a Create Your Own Color Kit.
For this great wind chime craft, I chose Crisp White and the Glosssifier spray.
