6 Stunning Upcycled Hanging Basket Ideas
3 minute read
You may be talking with a bad credit mortgage broker about how to buy your home with adverse credit, but that doesn’t mean your garden can’t look a million dollars! Summer is most definitely here and nature is putting on a bloomin’ brilliant show. If you’d like to cheer up your porch or patio, here are 6 stunning up-cycled hanging baskets you can create from everyday bits and pieces you might have lying around the house…
1. Plant in tired out tyres
If you’ve got an old tyre or two lying around, why not turn them into surprisingly pretty suspended planters? Screw into the wall or use a rope to hang in a larger space. Give your tyres a coat of paint, pop some compost in the bottom and plant some trailing beauties. Lovely!
2. Be a basket case
Old gift baskets make brilliant planters – and if you’re lucky enough to have a few lying around, you can make your own multi-level hanging baskets that will brighten up your home no end.
3. Mix chandeliers & compost
Tired of your old lighting? Spotted a fabulous old chandelier in your local charity shop? Turn this old treasure into up-cycled garden loveliness by planting up the lamps and suspending the whole thing in your garden.
4. Milk your recyclables for inspiration
Cut out milk cartons (particular the big 2 litre kinds), make magical planters for garden gloriousness. Although not strictly hanging baskets, we love how ingenious and environmentally friendly this up-cycle is so we had to share it with you! It’s just perfect for a herb garden.
5. Paint tin planting
Old paint tins – and even smaller food tins – make magical hanging baskets after a lick of colourful paint. Bore holes into the upper sides of your old tins, then suspend them from chain or string. Simple!
6. Use your imagination
Hardy plants will thrive wherever they have sunshine, water and a little bit of TLC. If you use your imagination, you can turn almost anything you have to hand into a hanging planter, from old boots to bike helmets! Looking for more money saving tips?
