Insulator Turned Planter


I needed to find something small for my new little succulent plant. I have a ton of insulators because I collect them and just love the blue color ones. The plant fit perfectly.
I took some wire I had. Not sure of the gauge, I got it at Home Depot, its pretty thick. I wired it around the insulator and up to make a loop. I also added some pretty beads. Its hanging in my sunroom. I may need to make a drainage hold in the bottom. I will see how the plant does. It doesn't require much water so hopefully its good like this.
These are the before of the planter. pretty just sitting but prettier as a planter

    My insulators are thicker than mist that you find. J had a lamp maker look at drilling the hole , but he wouldn't take a chance on breaking it.
