Learn to make these clever container gardens out of everyday items from the experts at Lowe's Creative Ideas.
Try giving a basic ceiling light a colorful upgrade with paint, and then turn it into a container for shapely plants. The prismatic glass of the fixture contributes a nice texture to the scene, while the purplish-red paint color complements the bromeliad's warm organic hues.
Step 1: Use painter's tape to cover the glass areas of the ceiling fixture drum.
Step 2: Spray-paint the white plastic areas. Allow to dry, and then remove the tape.
Step 3: Plant a succulent or bromeliad in the potting soil. Add a shallow layer of the stone soil cover around the plant. Water lightly.
Tip: For growing cacti and succulents, try Miracle-Gro Cactus Potting Mix. It provides excellent drainage for these desert plants.
