Turn a Vintage Kettle into a flower planter!
Welcome to Day 3 of my Red, White, and Blue DIY series! This was originally posted last Memorial Day, but I updated it and added a video for you to check out to make it part of this series.

I found this vintage kettle a couple of months ago when the hubby, Eric, and I were out looking for items for another project. I thought it was really cool and I was able to talk the owner of the shop down on the price so it was a good deal.
We took it home and it sat in a corner for a while. After passing by it for several weeks and thinking about what I could do with it, I finally settled on turning it into a flower planter.
I went to our local plant stand and picked out some red geraniums. Since it’s Memorial Day, I thought they would go well with the patriotic sign I made a couple of years ago.

I asked Eric to drill holes in the bottom of the kettle for the water to drain out. I used some leftover potting soil we had to plant the flowers in the kettle.
I added some black mulch to finish it off and set them out on the porch! Isn’t it pretty?
It was super simple, but adds some pretty color to the front porch just in time for summer! I love taking an item that was originally something else and giving it a new purpose!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! For more pics of our home, visit me on Instagram!
