Tonight in this very windy and snowy evening. How refreshing it is to see this vibrant colored Primroses that I picked up at the grocery store today. They had an abundance of them so they were marked down in price. They brighten up my kitchen and are a constant reminder to me of the season ahead.
The reason that I created this pretty little arrangement, was to show just how simple it is to recycle containers. I was asked to create three prizes for a party the last Friday night in March. This is the first prize. The one pictured above is mine, but I plan on doing one just like it as a prize for the game night party.
At the end of last summer I found two of these wire containers on a clearance shelf for a few dollars. I bought them and put them away. I didn't really care for them as they were, but I knew I could somehow recycle them this Spring.
I cut out the styrofoam in each of these plastic pots. It was glued in so I cut it out with my knife.
Then I took four clay pots that I had from last summer and put them in each opening instead of the green plastic pots. These clay pots are steadier than the flimsy plastic ones.
When the Primroses are done blooming, one can wash the clay pots and use them as a picnic accessory. You could store plastic knives in one pot, forks and spoons in the others. Maybe roll napkins and store in the forth pot. Or any other ideas one has. The recycling continues.
