Spring Flower Basket...

What do you do with a basket from a hamper gift
 when you have baskets literally coming out your ears?

Upcycle it of course!

 I spray painted the basket in a soft grey.
This also gives it a little bit more water repelling protection.

 From Bunnings I bought ready to plant annual pots.
A Pansy, sweet alyssum, and two polyanthus.

 Next I lined the basket with a heavy clear plastic, 
and poked drainage holes in the bottom.

 A good quality potting mix filled it.

And the plants planted.

A whole lot of spring pretty...

 that utilizes a basket that would have probably been lost 
and forgotten in the storage shed.

  3. What a creative way to reuse a cane basket - so pretty. Great idea to paint it for protection. I've given away so many over the years.
