Hanging Fruit Basket Conversion

If you don't know by now, I LOVE plants! There's just something about them that makes a place feel homey & peaceful.

I have had this fruit basket hanging in my kitchen hallway for a while now & it's always getting bumped into by myself & husband...he's so glad it's out of the way now:-) I knew the minute I saw it (it was given to me) I wanted to put plants in it but I thought I would give it a shot as our fruit holder. Unless I were to put a hook in the ceiling & hang it in some strange place in our kitchen it wasn't working!! So it is now hanging in our tree out back & I love it! I think I'm wishing I would have spray painted it black first though.

Once all the plants fill in it will look a lot better.

Here is how it was done: not hard at all!

The "Dollar Tree" has the coconut liners for a $1 a piece, I used 2 for this project. One fit in the bottom tier & I used 1 more for the middle & top tier. You will just have to cut & piece it together. To get the large one on the bottom to fit tightly I cut little triangles out of it around the top 3-4 times.
Sorry the photo isn't clear

Some of these plants are annuals so when they die off I will spay paint it black. I love Ferns, supper easy to care for & beautiful all year long! I can't wait for this one to fill out.

Notice "Raja" my bangle cat sitting on the neighbors chair...he is always in the background of all our photos..LOL
Hope this will bring you some inspiration!
