DIY: Potted Tier Planters

I wanted to share a fun tutorial I came across on the web that is perfect for this time of the  year as we welcome Spring (officially)!  Positively Splendid shares a How-To on tier planters.   How adorable is this? It's a fun read.

Anyone else getting their gardens ready?
