Patriotic Planter

Recently, Target had their plastic color planters on sale.  The big planter  was $4.94, the medium $2, and the small only $1.72.   I have seen many fun tiered planters on Pinterest, so at those prices I thought I would try to make one of my own. 

I loved the bright red planters.  With 4th of July coming up soon, I thought it would be fun to make it with a red, white and blue theme.   I filled each of the planters with potting soil and then placed the medium planter on top of the large. I pushed it down a little bit into the larger planter.  You don't need to go too deep, but  deep enough that medium planter is secure. 

We found our red, white and blue flowers at Meijers.  It was kind of difficult to find blue, but I came across some that were on sale.  I love it when that happens.  I don't remember exactly what their were called because I accidentally picked the packs without the plastic label. I know they had blue in their name.   Does anyone recognize them? 

I repeated the steps with the small planter and  then planted my red and white flowers.  I used white Impatiens, and red Petunias. 

Right now my planter  is sitting on the deck.  I might add some flags on the 4th to really dress it up. Kara also has an idea she wants to try if we have time. 

I will be linking up my Patriotic Planter on these wonderful linky parties here.
