Here a small fun project for my WC Soccer flowers.
Some baskets from left over pallet wood.
Painted them gray washed so they look if they are used.
It is a kind of joke.I live in Holland and our colour on games is Orange.
And the flowers I put in the baskets, we call them African ( African Marigold)
So….. WC Soccer in Africa with a dutch flavor.

Well, I know nothing about soccer, but I certainly can appreciate the contast in the colour of the wood and the beautiful orange marigolds. Good job, Houtje!

I too agree, nice marigolds and great planters to hold them.

Looks like the Netherlands soccer team is doing well in the World Cup Standings so far. Good luck to your team and those are beautiful planters!
