When I saw this on Shanty-2-Chic's blog, I knew I had to make it for my mother-in-law! I was blessed with 2 of them. One of them, Gina (Jers stepmom), is super "country." They live on a ranch and raise horses. So I knew this would be perfect for her ranch house.
So, for mother's day, I set out to make this gift for her. And it was e-a-s-y!
With very little supplies, an afternoon and a little help from my boytoy, we had a cute little planter box for some house plants to be housed in.
I threw on some rosettes that I had in my craft closet and....bam! She's a country beauty. We were going for the "rustic" look so we left the nail heads unpainted and scuffed her sides up a bit with a 3M sander block.
I went through the "inside plant" section at Home Depot and found these plants. The un-scientific names for them are: left, ET fingers; middle, moon plant; right, Aloe Vera plant.
I love the way she turned out and Gina loved her too! I thought about making one for my kitchen sink ledge. But, of course, I've moved on to other projects. :)
I seriously love Shanty's website! I constantly want to make everything they make. Ha.
Friday, I'll be posting all about my "other" mother's day gifts that I made for my mom and Jer's mom. It's another Shanty creation you might want to make yourself!
