Upcycled from tin cans, these simple hanging planters have us hooked here at Country Days. A chic way to showcase spring blooms indoors, they’re great if you’re limited on outdoor space or looking to spruce up a bare wall.
To make, fill cans with water and freeze (this prevents them from bending out of shape). Use a nail and hammer to create holes in the bottom of the cans for drainage. Create two evenly spaced holes along the top edges and leave to thaw before threading through a length of twine to make a loop.
For a rustic look, pick natural fabrics such as linen or hessian in coordinating, neutral shades. Measure and cut to fit around your cans, then fray the edges. Hold in place using double-sided tape and neatly wrap with string or twine. Now you’re ready to pot your favourite plants! What will you choose?Read more →
