Flower Pot Heater

This week I saw this Flower Pot Heater on You Tube, with instructions how to make it and all. Since the weatherpeople here are forecasting a real horror winter in the Netherlands, where I live, (guess we had to be punished after a great, almost everlasting summer) I thought: 'Well, why not give it a try'. I had some Flower Pots left from the summer ánd I always have tea lights somewhere around the house ánd I can always count on my husband for screws, nuts, wash rings and that kind of stuff, so I could start right away. This is how it turned out. Gives a lot of heat, costs about nothing and I think it looks pretty nice, too. 

Want to make your own heater? You can find instructions HERE.

  1. What a great idea! This flower pot heater looks much safer and prettier than other types of heaters I've seen! It's good to be prepared. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you for sharing this at Anything Goes. It looks great! I shared this post on Pinterest. :)

  3. Neat! I had no idea, will give this a try. We get bad weather off and on all winter in NC. Thanks for linking up to Snickerdoodle Sunday!

  4. I saw your post on Teach Me Tuesday and clicked over to check it out. I'm really curious now! I'll definitely look at the instructions.

  5. I pinned this heater. Did it put out much heat.

    1. Yes, there comes lots of heat from it! You can warming up a small room with it.

  6. I would be very careful about putting this on a wooden surface. These "heaters" get very hot and it would be very easy for it to burn the wood or catch fire. I would find a fireproof mat to set it on.
