When we moved into our house almost a year ago my hubby accidentally dropped a box. It wasn’t just any old box. It was that box that just so happened to have all of the Vintage tea sets that we used on our wedding day! So as you can imagine we were both pretty upset as the tea sets were something we had hoped to pass down to our kids one day. Sort of like a family tradition. So instead of throwing the broken pieces away, I thought I would share with you my Repurposed Old Vintage Plate Garden Idea.
Repurposed Old Vintage Plate Garden Idea
As you can see there were a few salvageable pieces that I could use for this project.
- Vintage Plates – You can, of course, use non-broken plates and cups which you can find at your local thrift store.
- An old planter – I found this one at a garage sale but terracotta pots would also do the trick!
- An arrangement of plants – I used alyssum and pansies.
- Small Shovel
Step 1 – Add soil to your planter and then arrange your vintage plates and cups in an arrangement that you’re happy with.
Step 2 – Arrange your plants around your plated and cups. I decided to go around the edges with alyssum and pop the pansies randomly around the centre.
Step 3 – Give them a good drink and pop your planter somewhere in a nice sunny spot!
And watch them grow and thicken out! There you have a fun way to repurpose old plates whether they are broken or not and enjoy!
