Many already consider flowers to be a refreshing splash of color in their backyard or garden, so why not strengthen the impression by making them literally seem like a dash of spilled paint? These creative garden designs will show you how you can make flowers look like spilled streams and mounds of liquid color!

There's no one right or wrong way to make your spilled-pot garden, but one thing most guides agree on is that you should bury about half of the pot in the ground. This, of course, makes spilled-pot planters a great way to recycled old or broken pots (If you want more ideas for how to use old pots, check out our list of broken-pot planters)! The rest is easy – choose your plants and plant them in the location and design of your choice!

If you have a cool spilled-pot design, please share it with us by adding it to this list – and upvote your favorites, too!

I like this one for California especially! We are in a horrible drought, and as much as I love the other ideas, I just couldn't justify all the water those would take to keep alive! My neighbors would not be happy. We are painting or lawns green out here!

The little small and lovely animal sculpture adds more liveliness to the pot.
