DIY Standing Outdoor Plant Hanger

Hey there sweet friends! Today I've got a super simple project to share with you. My tool girl crew and I get together once a month to share a simple project we've built using power tools.

It's that time again! Time to share my Get Your DIY on party project!

This can be anything involving flowers: real or artificial, hand-crafted or stamped. It can even be something in a pretty floral print or in my case, a fun planter! I was tired of my flowers always being off to the side because of my umbrella, but I came up with the perfect … [Read more...]
