Crochet plant hanger


Now that Christmas is very very close, maybe someone would like this idea as a present or just a decoration for your home in the future. This is very easy to make by yourself, but even easier to buy from my friend's shop. :)
She has very beautiful gift.

Below is a small photo tutorial from Svetlana of the crochet plant hanger.

Some days ago my aunt has a name day and her husband brought a pot of beautiful purple petunias. We decided to hang it at the garden swing. To decorate the plastic container I've crocheted a new hanger.

I've made it to fit different containers with various dimensions. The pot with petunias is 8" wide and the other one I've tried is 5.5".

No need to push the pot into the basket - you just gather segments of the basket around the container without injuring branches and leaves.

 You also could wrap it around the container and tie the knots without hanging.
