    You’ll need a good sized planter for this one.  I found a 14″ planter in the Dollar Tree Plus section for only $3.00!  That’s a great price for a planter this size!  They also had different colors to choose from.  I really wanted my to be oil rubbed bronze though, and that was an easy fix.

    The fix: spray paint.  Quick, easy and drys fast.  It really took this pot from average to one that looks much more high-end.  If you run into bad weather and can’t spray paint outside – I highly recommend this paint tent.  It’s ready for in garages to keep the over spray from going everywhere.  Just make sure you have a doors/windows open to air out the fumes. You can find it on Amazon HERE.

    I bet you red the supplies list above and thought “why pool noodles?” They make great fillers inside the bottom of large planters.  You cut them up into smaller pieces and put them in the bottom.  It does two things.  First, it is a space filler so you can use less of the pricey potting soil. aka – SAVES MONEY.  Second, it also makes the pots lighter incase you need to move them around.  Win/Win.
    Also, if you can find THIS KNIFE at Dollar Tree, grab it!  It works so well for cutting up the pool noodles!

    Of course, now we need to add soil and our plant(s) of choice.  I planted a blackberry bush here.  I have no idea how to take care of a blackberry bush but – here’s hoping I can this year!  All tips and advice are welcome!!! (leave them in the comments below)

    Like the pool noodles, you also may be wondering why we need BBQ skewers, they are for the arbor we are going to create!  It’s super affordable and super easy.  Use these longer BBQ skewers you can find at Dollar Tree.  I would use at least four, I used six here.  You simply push them into the soil around the outside edge and gather the ends at the top.  To temporarily secure them, use a rubber band.  Likely that won’t hold up all season as the rubber band may dry rot from the sun and weather.  So over the top of the rubber band, wrap jute several times and tie in a knot for a more permanent solution.

    And there you have it!  Dollar Tree items turned into a high-end looking container garden!
