Hanging My Jubilee Baskets From a Old Bird Feeder. Looking Fantastic
I made hanging baskets last month for decoration in my garden for the queens platinum jubilee.
A older project of mine on hometalk.
The thing was, my hanging point had broke. Maybe the wind or they became to heavy?
I could cry but no time for tears!
Just fast thinking.
I did make 2 of these hanging baskets.
They were not getting enough sun & growing uneven for my liking.
I also wanted to have both hanging baskets together.
To show there full potential of beauty.
I did have a bird feeder it is cast iron that would be perfect to use maybe?
Below is how my baskets looked last month.
Not as heavy either!
Below I woke upto this. 😬
My basket as got more fuller and the weight as broke this completely.
I did save my pot.
Living on the coast don't help.
As you can see it as became rusty.
Below is how my bird feeding station looked when I first bought it.
It has lasted quite a while.
Below is how it looks now.
I will hang both my baskets from this.
*I pull it from the ground giving it a good clean.
*Finding a new place in my garden where full sun can penetrate my baskets evenly.
I decided in the middle of the garden.
I used a hammer to drive it into the soft grass below.
I lost a foot in height driving it into the ground.
But I need to make sure my baskets will be secure.
I never got a picture of hammering the feeder into the ground or adding my baskets to the brackets on the station.
But, I was scared just incase it wouldn't sit, or maybe just flop over.?.
But to my surprise driving it into the ground so deep did work.
I took a sigh of relief, adding my big lush baskets
It's worked and has balanced perfectly 😍
My flower station I can call this now.
The baskets are very heavy and have grew very well.
As it shows this is very sturdy.
In the rings where water goes for birds
I added a plant pot with lillys growing.
But personally i like it without the lillys
It shows how much height I lost but to be safe and secure. Its worth it.
I can show both my baskets together in their full beauty with them getting full sun all day round.
From a old bird station it as made a lovely vocal point. where my hanging basket's look perfect and hang safely.
Making a lovley garden feature also.
So happy with my flower station.
