1. Select your pots.
2. Set the bowl on top of the rose pot. If you chose to secure the bowl to the rose pot, you can use liquid nails or any adhesive for pottery. Be careful not to plug up the drain hole. I do not recommend using a washer and bolt to secure, for the pot may not drain. I choose not to secure mine. I want to be able to take the pot of the stand and use as a table centerpiece when needed.
3. Turn the 6 inch pot upside down inside the bowl.
3. Place your potting soil inside the bowl.
4. Plant your plants. It is best to choose low growing or trailing plants. I selected trailing Hedera Ivy. I think succulents would also look great in this bowl. For ease of planting, I sat the bowl on the ground and watered in my plants. After the water drained, I place the bowl back on the stand and continued.
5. Place the saucer on top of the upside down 6 inch pot and fill with your pebbles. Place candles on the pebbles. If you like, you can secure the saucer to the pot with velcro. Using velcro will let you remove the saucer for easy cleaning.
I thought this project would also look great using 2 or 3 bowls tiered in different sizes. If you did not want a saucer on top, you can secure another 6 inch pot upright on top of the turned over 6 inch pot for planting, I think this style would make a great herb garden. If you want to make a tiered bird bath, use an epoxy to plug up the holes. See, I told you the possibilites were endless.
