From Tomato Planter to Hat Display

The beginning of November brings the start of the Holiday Season. For the next several weeks, I’ll be participating in holiday markets. As always, I like to keep my display looking fresh, ensuring my products are being shown the best way.

I had three tomato planters and wanted to use them for displaying beanies and gloves.


The yellow color didn’t go with my aesthetic, but a quick coat of paint would change that.


The spray paint came from my mother-in-law. My husband recently helped her do some decluttering as well, and since she knows I’m always doing working on a project she sent a few things home with him.



Best part of this project? It cost me nothing! FREE.99! I got the tomato planters from a friend who is doing some decluttering. In fact, I had recently picked up a clothes rack from her and saw the planters but didn’t think I would need them (at the time). Once I thought about the potential (of what they could be), I called my friend to see if they were still available.

Whenever I’m working on a project or need to do a little thinking outside of the box, I like to see what friends and families may have. Also, putting a request out on Social Media can yield great results. I like to think of it as “speaking it into existence.” Remember the dehydrator?

If that doesn’t work, Goodwill is always there. The seasons are changing and people are starting to declutter and transition. I saw several garden items in my last visit, as well as paint. As I always say, keep an open mind.

What projects have you completed using items specifically made for something else?
