Easiest DIY Project Ever!

Happy Monday!  Today is a really happy Monday here in Nova Scotia.  It is the first official day of our March Break!  Have an awesome week to all our Nova Scotia readers who are off with their children this week.  :)

I called this the easiest DIY project ever…because that’s exactly what it is.  These two little topiary pots took me…ohhh, probably 5 seconds to make!


I picked up a couple of these cute little concrete pots at Dollarama about 2 years ago.  I put them downstairs on my shelf and almost forgot about them.

A couple months ago, when Dollarama began putting out a few Spring things, I noticed these little plastic greenery balls. Right there in the isle of Dollarama the clouds parted and the angels sang…well not really.  But I suddenly saw these two items pairing up in my mind.

I brought them home, and sat the balls on the pots…     that’s it…      done.  No glue or anything.  Now if I want to use the pots, or balls for something else there is no mess, or glue to scrape off.

The pots were $1.50 and the balls…$1.00.  Love the Dollarama!

Spring is on it’s way, my friends.  We will soon be able to wish the winter of 2014 good bye!!!



*I am not being compensated in any way by Dollarama.  They don’t have a clue that I even exist.

Svitlana - wow, those pots are really look ancient, i wouldn’t tell they are from dollaramma. I also love this store, sometimes can find 1 dollar treasure in there, instead of paying 100s dollars for the same looking stuff.. and I find it funny.
