Hanging baskets

We have this old covered patio in our backyard. I've been trying to think of how to make it cuter and came up with this art project that I did with the kids. We got some of our empty paint cans (we always have left over construction/remodeling junk around!) and drilled holes in the bottom. Then we painted them with our left over house paints and planted some petunias in them. This variety of Petunia will supposedly get long stems and are meant for hanging baskets. We'll see how they do! The kids loved making these. Kevin and I even painted one each:-) A family that paints trash together- stays together:-)
