When Creative Juices Flow: Coconut Shell Hanging Planter

Posted on
This project has been on my mind for long. Executed it recently. I used coconut shells, twine, and bangles.  Put them together and the outcome is just superb. I am extremely happy to see it hanging in my garden. It looks so beautiful.
I planted different creepers in each coconut shell that is serving as a planter now.
I am sure that it will look awesome after a few months when the planter will be covered with different beautiful foliage.
Can you notice small jingling bells(ghungroo) at the bottom? They make such pleasing sounds.

Though I wanted to color shells and add beads to the twine I was so in a hurry that I didn’t wait and just hung it as it is. Probably I will make one more with a twist.


A lot more projects are in queue so drop by frequently and stay creative.
Have a lovely weekend ahead.
