Repurposed Frame Planter for Flowers

It's flower time in our area! 

Finally beautiful weather that makes me want to get out there and plant flowers in everything I can find. 

Today I'm using an old frame, a wire basket, and some beautiful petunias for a planter I can hang on my fence. 

You won't believe how easy it was to make!

Really, there was nothing to this project. 

I placed the basket at the bottom of the frame.

Then I used the drawer pulls to attach the basket handles to the inside of the frame.

I grabbed an old welcome sign I had made years ago and attached it with small nails to the top of the frame.

 And that is it! 


I hung it on my fence using this easy to find hanger.

I filled the basket with landscape fabric then added beautiful purple petunias!
