Now that spring has arrived, we see hanging pots all over the garden centers as well as the trendy home goods stores. Hanging pots are a wonderful way to decorate a porch or deck or bring some greenery into our homes. Lindsay from shrimpsaladcircus offers a tutorial on how to take a decorative candy dish and turn it into a stylish hanging pot.
A candy dish or a melamine bowl is the perfect sized vessel for a small plant that will accent any room of your home. For around $5 you can follow Lindsay’s instructions to complete this project. She provides a complete list of simple supplies for the hanging pot as well as very detailed photos that show each step of the process. After 5 small holes are drilled at even spaces along the top of the bowl, the bowl can be painted if you wish.
Finally, cording is inserted in the holes and secured together to create a hanging cord.
