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!
Free to Fab Basket Planter
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!
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!
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!
