Colander Planter and Planter Bling


This hanging basket is made with an antique colander. Here is what I started with.
I lined the colander with the coconut lining stuff used for most hanging baskets.  Then I added potting soil and the flowers.  Next thing added is the bling.  My mom made these by using fishing line.  She beaded it and glued mirrors on both sides of the fishing line.  Then it is tied onto your baskets.  This basket is hung with fishing line as well.  Here is another hanging basket with some bling.

My mom is daring and thinks outside of the norm.  She has decorated pots with marbles and paint. Here is a picture of one of her flower beds in which she wasn't afraid to add some color to her big pots.

Have a beautiful Sunday and thanks for stopping by to see me.
