What to get Mom for Mother's Day? Well Mom mentioned she saw a tipsy planter on the news from the Northwest Flower and Garden Show... I went to the show but could not find the vendor so I made one myself...

1 piece of rebar
1 10" clay pot
4 8" clay pots
potting soil

Take 10" clay planter, set in desired place, take a piece of rebar (I used 4' but think 8' would be better, provide more stability) pound the rebar into the ground through the drain hole
Fill the bottom planter with dirt:
then start stacking 8" planters through thr drain holes of each, filling each with dirt as you climb up the rebar:
The end result is a tipsy looking conversation piece in the garden.
Just fill with plants and enjoy!
