This has been on my list of stuff to make for awhile now. I figured this would be a perfect outdoor craft since it doesn't require a lot of time or materials. Plus, you can't beat the view :)
So grab something to sit on (a blanket or towel) and here's what you'll need to bring:
1) Twine, rope or yarn. It all depends on the look you're going for (or whatever you might have around the house).
2) Scissors. Bring some if you can, but don't fret if you forget.
3) Pot, jar, etc.
4) Yardstick. I'll bring two so you don't have to bring one unless you want to.
5) Any embellishments like beads or metal fittings you'd like to add.
I thought it best to start off with just a simple hanging planter like the ones below. I'll bring some printed directions for people to share. If you'd like to make a different version, feel free. There are a ton of instructions out there.
