This project couldn’t be easier! The only things you will need are spray paint in the color of your choice, a basket and some painter’s tape. This basket I had already laying around as I had bought at one point because it was so cheap!
Free to Fab Basket Planter
I have been experimenting more and more with real plants lately and am enjoying placing them in my home. Planters I’ve come to realize though, can be expensive! Using some things I had already laying around the house, I was able to create a modern look for one of my plants in less than 10 minutes!
Tape Off Your Basket
Use the painter’s tape to create a line around the middle of your basket. You could even do a zig zag or angled line depending on your style.
Use spray paint on the area marked off below your tape line. Let dry and reapply a 2nd coat if needed. Remove your tape once dry and that’s it!
Insert Plant and Style
Use your new modern basket as a planter by simply adding in a plant of similar size. To make things easier and less messy, I put the disposable tray with drain holes right into the basket. Not bad for free and 10 minutes of work!
