HOW TO MAKE GARDEN PLANTER FROM OLD CANDELABRA
Do you have a few minutes to make your own freestanding garden planter? Of course you do!
HOW TO MAKE GARDEN PLANTER IN 3 EASY STEPS
– Large candelabra
– Hanging wire basket + liner
– Wire snips
– Spray paint
HOW TO MAKE EASY GARDEN PLANTER IN 3 FAST STEPS
Using wire snips, cut the middle bar out of the bottom of the basket so that it’ll fit over one of the candle holders.
Remove the hanging chain from the wire basket.
This is an optional step. I decided to leave the candelabra rusted but gave the wire basket a spray of brown paint to match its color.
Once dry, slip the basket over one of the candle holders (I used the middle candle holder).
Insert the basket liner, plant and ENJOY!
