Decorate the tower pots: We recommend that that you draw the larger petals with the wider-nibbed edding matt paint marker first, and then go round the flowers with the finer edding matt paint marker. For this step you can either use our various templates or draw freehand. Plant the flowers of your choice in a variety of colours in the terracotta pots; bright spring blooms and herbs are both ideal.
Next, carefully push the metal rod or wooden stake through the centre of the terracotta pots. Angle the filled pots on the rod in such a way that they support each other. Push the metal rod/wooden stake deep down into the soil to ensure a secure hold – and voila, all finished!
Tip: If you love the floral pattern on your plant pot tower, why not use it to decorate other items in your garden: a zinc watering can, for example.
