Repurposed Macrame Fringe Bag Planter
Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but things have been a wee bit stressful around here. Yesterday, I had to take a break from the world and regain a little perspective. Joel watched the kids while I did a few errands. Sometimes a little shopping therapy (even if just for groceries) can do the mind some good!
Of course, this meant a quick trip to Target where I spotted this great macrame fringe bag that I thought would make for a great project to repurpose! Yes, I love to give new meaning to pieces in fun and unique ways. Kind of like my placemat wall hanging DIY.
- Grab a fun bag, a plant (I found mine at my favorite local nursery just down the street from our house) and a vase.
- Be sure to measure your bag before purchasing your plant and vase to ensure it will fit nicely.
- Place the vase into your bag, this will protect the interior from collecting dirt or water run-off.
- Place your plant into your new plant hanger and enjoy!
I decided to hang my new piece in the main bath. It needed a pop of color and a little life! I never thought a bag would make a fun plant hanger, but I’m sure glad I gave it a try.
Besides the vibrant color, I love the texture it adds to the room. It has that great 70s trend I’m looking for and certainly creates interest in the space. I mean, there’s a bag hanging from my ceiling…with a plant in it. How interesting is that – am I right?!
So there you go my friends, hopefully you feel inspired to buy a bag and stick a plant in it! Hopefully I don’t sound completely crazy!
