What You Need

  • Flower pot or coffee can
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Small shovel

  1. Decorate your flowerpot with paint or other materials.
  2. Pick a cool, shady spot in a garden and dig a small hole that your pot can fit into while laying on its side.
  3. Place the container in your hole and bury the bottom half. Make sure there is some dirt inside, too.
  4. Add some small rocks and leaves inside for extra cushion.
