First I started with a LARGE clay pot for my base. Inside is a plant stand that is anchored with soil and bricks. In order to support another clay pot I used a wire basket that I covered with moss to hide the fact that I have tons of wire to that attaches the wire basket to the plant stand. The outer edge is surrounded with hanging ivy except for the very front (you'll see why in a minute!)
We had thought of adding a real finch in a bird cage but decided against it. They tend to keep the temp down at night and we didn't want to take a chance of the birdie going bottoms up!
I'll be back tomorrow to share a project one of my co-workers did. Her category had to do with making a table setting to simulate a food made out of flowers. Wait 'til I show you what she did. Hint: she's Japanese.
