Prevent rings from forming under containers with these upcycled pot feet.

Patio protection

You don’t have to spend a small fortune on pot feet to prevent containers from staining your patio or any concrete or wood surface.

Turn three or four 3-oz. cat food cans upside down as a platform for pots, like at left. Tuna cans would also work. This minimizes contact with the surface below, helping water drain quickly during the season.
