Tip From Pam Sinclair Sister On The Fly and owner of Lil Pink

Beautiful Flower Pot Awning Anchors

A great way to tie down your awning and adorable too! Use empty paint cans filled with cement, some gals have used big popcorn containers. You stick flowers in them while the cement is wet. They are heavy enough to anchor the awnings, you may have to use 2 or 3 of them to do it. While the cement is wet you stick i...n a great big eye bolt, one big enough to reach the bottom of the pot, if it has a big nut on the end, even better, It keeps the bolt down if movement loosens it. The cement does not come out the openings. Once the cement, anchor and flowers are set - put the can inside of a flower pot - you can't see the cement and all you see are the pretty flowers.


  1. I wish I could see the pic, but it sounds like a great idea and something I might try

  2. I'm really interested in this process as several of us (sotf) would love to try this. Can you get the pictures to work...I can't see them either..Thanks. Karen #2062
