Step 12: Your Ideas...
Using coloured Duct Tape instead of using the Masking Tape and colouring pen/pencil.
Sticking kiddish stickers or mini photo's of friends/family onto your flower box to add the personal touch to it, and make it look more appealing than just the mild colouring.
Using two magnets instead of just the one. This will help with stability and stop any chance of it spinning/tipping over.
Growing cooking herbs in it.
Very Keri suggested:
Painting it and then covering it with buttons, rhinestones and/or ribbon. Then growing Basil in it.
Adding a little polymer from a nappy (diaper) or ladies pad will hold the water longer, thus requiring less watering.
After colouring the masking tape, cover the Flower Box with a little sticky tape.
This helps to give it a glossy, wipe-proof look.
Using a strip magnet instead of a normal magnet.
Growing plants in it that have very shallow roots, such as aloe, cacti, or mosses.
