Garden Flowerpot Chair Planter - finished planter with yellow flowers and the bee garden signI grabbed this chair from a neighbor's loose trash and decided to "recycle" it to make a chair planter.


Total Time: 90 minutes

Yield: 1



  1. Draw a circle slightly larger than the size of the bottom of the pot you wish to plant your flowers in.
