So here is the fishing basket and the color of paint I chose. It is Rustoleum in Eden satin. I lighted sprayed the basket giving it two coats of paint. Let dry completely in between coats.
Fishing Basket Creel Turned Hanging Flower Basket
So while cleaning out my mom's shed I came across a fishing basket creel. It was in rough shape, falling apart but I thought I could use it for something so it ended up coming home with me. It hung in my shed and then I thought wouldn't it look cool to put some flowers in it and hang it up. So that is what I did.
Here it is painted. Love the color. Already have visions for the other seasons using this basket.
Next I lined it with a plastic bag and some newspaper so the soil wouldn't run out of it. You can use a plant liner also. I used what I had on hand.
Now it is time to add my flowers. These are called million bells. I added half the basket full of potting soil, added my flowers then continued filling basket with soil. Once done I added a hook onto my fence where I wanted it to hang.
So here it is complete.
I love how this turned out. It was super easy to do and is a great addition to my summer decor.
