Show & Tell Friday

Welcome to Show & Tell Friday hosted by Kelli at There's No Place Like Home! Because I had company I missed last week but I did find the time to stop by everyone's displays.

This week I couldn't resist bringing out my bunny plant holder that I tole painted a few years ago. On a whim I ordered the design packet (sorry I can't remember the designer's name) and when it arrived my husband cut out the shapes for me to paint. After all the painting was done, he assembled it together and I quickly filled it with some ivy! It really only took a few days to do this whole project. The sides are on a slant and the bottom is open so I can just set in any potted plant without worrying about the wood rotting. What a fun project and I just loved painting the giant furry feet.

This weekend I'm going to try to find a new flowering plant to display in it.

Hope you enjoyed my Show & Tell! Please leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by.

How cute! I always wanted to learn how to tole paint. You could put a number of different things in there -- candy for one, or Easter eggs.
