A while back I found this on Pinterest:
I thought it would be great next to my kitchen window to hold flowers.
The Hubs "found" this owl plant hanger somewhere.
He is made out of cast iron .
And was black,
but I painted him white.
If you know me , you will find this funny,
cause I do not like predatory birds.
Owls are predatory birds.
But I thought he was kinda cute and would work well with this project.
I took an old Atlas jar.
Wrapped some copper jewelry wire around the rim.
Created a little loop on the back side of the jar to hang it on the hook.
Then filled it with some colorful fresh flowers from the grocery store.
I think it hangs out a little farther than I like.
I think it's because the hook is made for a hanging plant.
I may try a smaller bottle instead of a jar.
If you look at the original post,
you will see you used a shorter hook.
thecreatedhome.blogspot.com used hers to hold chalk by her chalkboard.
I think the possibilities are endless.
And I thank her for her inspiration !
Here he is playing peek-a-boo....
Another successful Pinterest project...
I think anyway.
If you would like to follow my Pinterest boards, I would just love it :)
