Pig in a trough. Bought the pig on clearance a few years ago at Hobby Lobby. The trough was upcycled almost 17 years ago from a trash bin somewhere around the UT campus, a relic of the 2000 Red River Shootout. I’ve forgotten when exactly we were told not to call the annual UT-OU game a “shootout”, but instead the Red River Rivalry. Try saying that three times real fast.
The topiary ball is made out of two old hanging baskets with liners that I had on hand, held together with zip ties and wire. It is quite heavy, and I may have to add stronger S hooks to hold it. ‘twould be quite a mess, if it were to fall!
Both are planted with English ivy, which I have no experience with.
