Are you on the hunt for a bargain when it comes to your hanging flower baskets?
You’ve come to the right place. I’m going to walk you all around the internet and share some ideas on how you can make your home look fabulous this season with gorgeous DIY hanging baskets.
Whether you’re looking to fix up your old hanging baskets, create new ones, show off your baskets differently than previously, or looking for a compact way to grow veggies, we have you covered.
You can have it all without spending a small fortune. Here’s how:
1. Going from Cheap to High-End Planters
If you bought cheap plastic planters in years past because it’s all you could afford, don’t feel like you must stick with them.
Instead, you can use the same planters, spray paint them, and add some rope for their hanging element. You’ll have gorgeous planters with a high-end look without your wallet feeling the squeeze.
2. Vintage Colander Hanging Basket
Would you like to present your flowers in a unique way without breaking the bank? Shop your local thrift store in search for an enamel colander.
You can attach a chain to the sides of the colander, add soil, and plant your flowers in it. In no time, you’ll have an interesting and inexpensive DIY flower basket.
3. DIY Dollar Store Hanging Baskets
