I’ve been wanting a new planter for my dieffenbachia for awhile now. I have two other plants in the living room that have brown wicker planters, so I knew I wanted something different. And something with color. It actually took me a few months before I came up with an idea.
I purchased one of these cute baskets at Dollar Tree.
And some 4mm cord at Hobby Lobby in different colors.
First I popped the handle off. Using my glue gun I attached one end of the cord to the inside of the basket and wove it in and out, around and around, until the gaps were covered. Each color section took about 8 yards to cover it.
Then I wrapped about 20 yards around the rim in pink. And glued some 2mm white cord that I had, on the outside of the basket between the colors.
A little time consuming, but simple project.
I had plenty of cord left, and did another one for stuff on my deck.
My deck rug is red, turquoise and yellow, so when it comes out for the season it should look cute together.
