The VHS tapes have been staring at me in the living room for more than a month. It could even be two months. I think that was the last time the Husband and I opened a bunch of boxes from storage to determine what to use, keep, throw, donate, recycle, maybe repurpose, or maybe sell. I think these VHS tapes are ones that I thought we might be able to sell online one day.
This morning I finally did something with 12 of the VHS tapes. I bound them together with duct tape to make two walls for a bottomless planter. That's it in the photo. Pretty cool, huh?
The planter would've been made of all VHS tapes, but I didn't have enough tapes. Fortunately, I kept the doors of a small cabinet, which fell apart last year, for the other two walls.
I figure the pretty flowers will take the focus away from the funky taping. Maybe later I'll pretty up the planter with color or simply put something beside the taped VHS-tape side.
It feels good to make something!
Today I'm hooking up with All Seasons, a meme hosted by Jesh at Artworks from JeshStG. Click here to check other participants, or to join in yourself. Thanks, Jesh!

Hope Easter was a good day for you and your hubby:) Here it rained in the afternoon:) Thank you much for sharing your new planter with All Seasons, dear friend! Have a good one.
A laugh is the perfect response to a VHS-Tape planter. I'll take a chuckle and a smile, too. :-)Delete
As Elvis liked to say, "Thank you. Thank you very much." :-)Delete
