We have all seen those old chimney pots lying around peoples yards or on tips but instead of throwing them away why not give them a lick of paint and add some sparkle to your garden in the process. My neighbour was throwing an old one away so I salvaged it and gave it a little face-lift.
Firstly I sanded it down to remove any dirt and loose flakes. Then I painted it with a pale green paint with you can use on pot amongst other things. Then I stuck some glass beads and shells onto with a strong glue. I decided to give it a seaside theme as I had a few shells and plastic starfish hanging around just waiting for a project like this one.
