Great Earth Day (or ANY day) project. Don't forget drainage holes in the bottom and strong twine. You don't want your lovely plants crashing to the ground. Also, how about adding some simple flowers in contrasting colors.

These DIY planters are so cute! What a great upcycling idea (especially for Earth Day)!

That's a great idea! I love to garden in the summer, but never have enough room to grow everything I need. Painting various plastic containers bright colors and hanging them around the sunny edges of the patio would do it! I should file this under "why didn't I think of that!"

easy and nice
