Old Canning Pot turned into garden accessories...

I recently updated a small area of the backyard near one of the outbuildings
using items that we had on hand for the most part...



Including my old canning pot..
which I used as a flower pot by simply drilling some drainage holes
into the bottom of it, adding dirt, and flowers.

Well, since then I added to to this area using the lid from the same old
canning pot.

I simply drilled a few holes, then we added some wire, and hung it onto a
shepherds hook.
Filled it with water and placed a rock in the center to weigh it down...
and waaahlaaa... a hanging bird bath.






I also considered simply placing it onto a tomato cage because I thought that would work...
but ended up trying the hanging version instead. :0)

  1. I tell you TIna...we have so much in common! I had a pot with a plant in it just like this one that was my Granny Willie Mae's. The bottom rusted out finally, but I had it for years. She has been gone for 27 years and no telling how long she had it before I inherited it. Such sweet memories. Yours is perfect and I love the idea of using the lid for a birdbath! That was genius...:) It looks beautiful. Enjoy...:)

    Blessings, Vicky
