Well, any good person would have stopped there, because they were looking quite good. I don't exactly fit that bill. Just so happens, that my lovely mother had given me a large spool of jute rope. When I asked her about it's origins, she told me it was as old as I was . She used it when she was in her MACRAME phase-- and this just makes me giggle. I can remember having plants hanging in macrame holders in our childhood home. I even remember a big hoop macrame swing that she had made to hang from our deck. It was so big I could almost lay down in it. I would love to have that swing now. Just reminds me that there is nothing my mom can't do. If one day I do half of what she does, I will be elated!
I had to put this rope to use, and since I don't know how to macrame, I decided to weave it around my planters in a basket like form. Here is the final product.
I have two topiary that I purchased at a garage sale last year that needed a substantial planter and I think these will work just fine.
The topiary on the left is in its original basket and it looks a little dinky, especially side by side.
Now I just need to finish the second one.
I am sharing this at these great sights:
