a flower pot from any can you have at home.
This is a really fast way to decorate your home with no expenses. You can change it after a time when you are bored of the look and what something new. I needed a flower pot for my "pepper" and I din't want to spend money on it so I just used what I had at home. It looks nice, And I can change it the same way to another color or add more matching flower pots just by using cans from corns beans or anything else :)
