I wanted to share this fun tutorial of how to make a Upcycled DIY Hanging Flower Pot. I love how these turned out and can’t wait for the flowers to grow in!
I love flowers. My yard is covered in Roses, Petunias, Marigolds, Hollyhocks, Sunflowers, Irises, and many other varieties, some I can’t ever remember the names for. Since my kids love SunnyD drinks I decided to use the leftover bottles to make upcycled DIY Hanging Flower Pots for my backyard fence. I love how they turned out. I will updated in a couple of weeks with pictures of the pots with the growing flowers.
To make these I used empty SunnyD bottles, washed them and took the packaging off. Then I took my husbands Hitachi Drill and put 5-6 small holes in the bottom of each bottle. This is to help keep the soil drained.
After I drilled those holes, I also drilled one on each side at the top to help with the wire. I used about 8-10 inches of wire and tried 3 different ways of securing the wire to the bottles. I really liked the last one the most, where I twisted one end to create a little loop, then wrapped the wire around the bottle and secured it on the other side, then took the wire and made a handle and secured it to the loop I made fire. You can see the picture below for a better idea.
Once I had the wire on and the holes drilled, I put some rocks in the very bottom of the bottle. Then I filled it up with potting soil. I planted a few flower seeds in the pots and gave them some water and then hung them out on the fence using some nails.
This only took about 15 minutes and it is such a great way to add some color to any part of your yard. I am going to make some more and hang them from our porch lights so they can have flowers around them. The SunnyD bottles are a heavy duty plastic so I am not worried about them falling apart.
You can get the 24 ct SunnyD cases at Sam’s Club for only $5.38! You can have these fun drinks and then use the bottles for so many different activities. The beverage itself is great as it, but you can put the bottles in the freezer for a while and then have a slush, you can also use it for recipes! For more fun ideas visit WhereFunBegins.net
