Scarecrow Watering Can Planter Welcomes in FallScarecrow Watering Can Fall Planter

One of my favorite things to do when I am at Lowe’s is to see what is down at the back of the plant aisles, almost dead, and on sale.  I usually can find something that I think I’ll be able to bring back to life.

Today’s find was a Shasta daisy plant in a neat little watering can.  Perfect for fall.  I was not sure whether the plant would survive but I loved the planter.

Shasta daisy planter almost deadI removed all the totally dead leaves and left some of the ones with brownish edges, because I wanted the color variation.  Then I gave the plant a really good watering.  There are plenty of small new green shoots, so I think the plant will be fine, but basically I just wanted it as a base for the project, so it will be a bonus if it does.

I got a lot of debris out of the plant.  No wonder they marked it down!


These are my supplies, all purchased at a local Dollar Store for one buck each.

Supplies for the project.First, I took a bamboo skewer and poked it up into the little scarecrow and then secured it with hot glue.

The ceramic pumpkin had a couple of holes in the bottom, so I poked skewers into those and secured them with a twist tie and hot glued them in place.

I did not want them showing on the front, so I attached a few fall leaves to the twist tie area.

This was a fun project that was quick and easy to do and cost me $10 and hopefully I’ll have a plant next year too!  The watering can can be used over and over. What a bargain!

Planter for next year to reuse too!
