very cool. Is there any way I could do it on my paved patio area? I wouldn't be able to anchor the rebar...I guess it would be ok if I didn't do too many pots or if I used a really big pot at the bottom and stacked smaller ones.

I don't see why that wouldn't work. Perhaps you could modify something, say an umbrella stand for support?

I too would like this one my deck for my herbs, it's cute and doesn't take up much room.

Love the tipsy pots! Thanks for posting such great ideas! So many projects, so little time :!:

I saw this mold at Lee Valley this weekend that you can use to make cement pots that look like budha faces... and the plant ends up looking like hair. (Do you know the ones?) I thought one would be kind of boring and I don't have much space so I didn't buy it... but this idea - stacking them on the rebar is perfect! Thanks again.

I love it! My neighbours are all into whimsy of various sorts, but I've yet to see tipsy pots here.
