Have you ever seen these plastic urns in the department stores?  See how to upcycle these plastic urns for an amazing look this fall season.

I got a tip from a girlfriend this week on a terrarium and plant shop that was going out of business in our area. They were emptying out their entire store. As my girlfriend left with a trailer full of goodies, I grabbed these two plastic urns for $15.

How to Upcycle Plastic Urns: Wash Thoroughly First, I washed the plastic urns thoroughly with soap and water and let them dry completely.

Choose your favorite paint color and begin painting over the plastic.  I chose the historic Essex Green color to match our porch.

Dry Time: I let the plastic urns sit overnight to dry. They are now a beautiful addition to our porch here in Vermont even though they are not matching urns.

I really love how they turned out, adding a touch more of elegance now that they are paired, along with their uniqueness of still being different.

Now I will sit patiently and wait for the purple mums in our new upcycled plastic urns to bloom.
