Spring Planting In A Colander!

DIY Spring Planter in a Colander!

How To Make Your Very Own Colander Planter!

You can use any size colander, new or used, for this project. If it’s a used one, you may want to brighten it up by spray painting it with a bright Spring color! Once you have gotten your colander prepared, take your twine and wrap one colander handle tightly with a half-yard of twine, making sure to push the pieces together to avoid gaps. Once covered, tie off and add a dab of glue to secure the string. Knot a yard of twine at each end of the handle. Repeat entire process with opposite handle. Next, line the colander with sheet moss and fill with potting soil and seasonal plants, (fern, pansies, Impatiens) then tie four lengths of twine together, add a hook and hang. These DIY potted beauties will brighten up any porch!
