I found these owl planters at good old Walmart. I thought they were a cute shape. Of course,how could you not love owls for fall? I didn’t like the color though and they almost have a creepy look. I wanted to update them a bit and make them a little more modern.
I had a can of gray indoor/outdoor spray paint and knew it would be the perfect thing to even out the color.
After spray painting them I let them dry and them grabbed my gold oil-based marker.
I outlined around the eyes to give them a pop of color. After they dried,I added my plants.
I bought a few smaller pots for 97 cents when I purchased the Mums to update my front landscaping.
Being a somewhat lazy planter, I put a jar on the bottom and dropped the plants right in, pots and all.
I liked them with the dark red of the Mums.
I might get a few more and spray paint them black for Halloween. It’s an inexpensive way to update an owl planter.
They are perfect for some interest on my front step!
