If you remember how I took a trip to an awesome store here in town and I was inspired to create something a little unique.
I didn't walk away with much that day.
This project has been in my mind for 2yrs .. so..I hope you like it as much as we do : )
We started off with this..
I bought the hanging planter for $1.98 had to change out the hanger though because they told me that wasn't for sale..darn. I bought a chain hanger for $4 instead.
Spanish Moss. Perfect for me because it can handle dry spells and you can put it on anything .. no soil : )
Looks a lot like spaghetti. I bought 4 bunches of these to cover the planter well.
You will also need galvanized steel wire. I had this laying around the house from a previous project.
I took the wire and began to wrap the base in a dream catcher fashion leaving enough space to get the spanish moss through.
Just keep going round and round with it. I did that so I could have a base for a candle plate and a candle. Side Note..Please use battery operated ones in case of fire.
I did not use any wire for the spanish moss...simply loop them through.
Here is what it looked like with spanish moss complete..
I thought it needed more. So back to the store I go and purchase faux forsythia.
I thought about cutting them and adding them in for some color..
(a little cardinal for something unexpected)
Some evening shots..
What do you think?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father's Day : )
