At this point I don't think that I need to
tell anyone who reads here regularly that
I am jumping up and down for spring!
In this house,
spring = plants...
it also equals yard sales.
Two of my favorite things.
About a month ago I found this amazing
vintage tri-level basket hanger.
You know the kind that hangs in the kitchens of
hipsters and grandmothers everywhere?
I've been dying for one, and when I
saw this one for less that $1
I had to have it, even though there was no where
in my kitchen to hang it.
That's where this project came from.
A way to have lots of beautiful succulents
on our tiny apartment balcony….
all wrapped up in an adorable hanging basket.
So here's a simple gardening DIY!
Hope you enjoy!
What You Will Need:
Some sort of hanging basket
Coconut husk liners
enough succulents for fill your baskets
First I fit my coconut liners into the baskets.
This took quite a bit of cutting and manipulating.
I used a total of 2 liners for this project.
The middle liner needed quite a bit cut off that I
used in the top tier.
Then I filled each basket about 2/3 full of soil.
I next arranged each of the succulents
in their respective baskets while there were still in
their individual containers.
I had a pretty good idea of
where each plant was going to go when
I was purchasing them,
making sure to get a good variety
of tall and short plants
as well as getting some with some hang to them.
After breaking down each root ball
to allow the plants to breath a bit,
I carefully arranged each
plant into its new home.
I made sure to give the succulents some space
so that as they grow they can fill in the baskets.
After everyone was in their new homes,
I gave them a heavy spray down
with a water bottle.
Took a few steps back.
And fell in love!
