Yes you read that right!  Only $4 for a beautiful ceramic urn with a cast iron obelisk!
I started out with this sad looking fake ivy topiary in a wooden planter box, that I got for .99 at the local Value Village.
I then came across this cute ceramic urn for $1.25 at the local Shop CI.
Yes that is a can of my FAVORITE spray paint!  Rust-Oleum Painters Touch Ultra Cover 2X!  They aren't joking about the coverage!
So the urn started out oregano green... Yes GREEN is my favorite color!
After I painted it, I decided that it needed to be darker...maybe aged?  So I broke out the Silhouette from Martha Stewart...and viola!
I added a $1.75 ivy and some sphagnum moss and ended up with this darling floral arrangement.
All for only $4!
