This weekend I had some DIY fun giving my new patio a vintage vibe. I had a group of small cactus plants in small terracotta pots. Even in groupings, they looked a little lonely, quite possibly because all of the pots are the same height. Here's a shot from Instagram.

A plaster antique frame from the Pip & Estella shop (now I must keep!!!) was the perfect piece to bring attention to the a trio of cacti sitting down low. And there was no need for a riser because the negative space at the top of the picture frame looks kind of cool.
Other plants were arranged on a higher surface to balance things out. I used a chair but other alternatives include:
- Stacked vintage crates
- A weathered stool
- Antique plant stand
Any vintage or antique frame will do the trick and the configurations are endless. Might you try it?
See what others thought.
