Need a quick front porch project…
Got any old baskets lying around the house?
I’m a total sucker when it comes to baskets. (a basket case one might say)
I’ve got quite the collection, I use them all over the house.
During my Spring Cleaning…this basket was headed for the trash when I decided to
repurpose it. I love the look of flowers in baskets. I had nothing to lose.
I can always throw it away later if it doesn’t wear well this summer. (look at how rough it is)
I gave the handle of the basket a quick fix with some craft glue held together with a binder clip.
I used a thin grocery store bag to line the basket and keep the dirt in place.
You might want to poke a few small holes in the bag for drainage.
Once you’ve filled the basket with dirt, tuck the remaining bag neatly around the sides
of the basket.
My basket will be on a shaded front porch.
I chose flowers that will grow well in shade.
I started with a couple larger pink geraniums and filled with smaller pink impatiens
and purple violas.
TIP: Don’t pack the basket so full that the flowers don’t have room to grow.
Now that Garage Sale season is upon us.
You may want to keep a look out for a cheap basket or two.
That is… if you don’t have any old baskets lying around waiting to be rescued.
