A Galvanized Spindle Planter

Every garden could use a little height for interest.

On a trip to the Country Living Fair earlier this summer I bought a birdhouse that I immediately put on a spindle. 

The vendor was selling the birdhouses both on spindles and separately. I bought just the birdhouse to save a little cash and used my own spindle.

This gave me an idea, since I have a basement full of spindles... why not add a small 
galvanized pot to a spindle to create a little height in the garden? 

I already had a few spindles painted this pretty light blue so attaching the pot to the top was easy with a screw and washer and some E6000 glue.

I drilled a hole in the bottom of the spindle and inserted a metal rod. This is so the rod can go into the dirt and not the spindle to prevent the wood from rotting.

The entire project took about 15 minutes and I had a fun little planter that added height and interest to my small container garden area.

  1. Great idea and it looks perfect in the garden.

  2. Susan - I love this project. You can repurpose them again at Christmas (non-gardening season) as porch candlesticks... Thanks for the imagination tickle! Donna
