Materials needed for this step: Clothing Article (pants), Cutting Utensils, needle and thread.
The first hurdle to overcome is how to make the Vert Garden look less like a clothes line and more like a fashionable planter. This can be accomplished by cutting a little bit here and there to maintain the material and to lose the clothing shape.
Cut the pants into the desired shape. Pants are fun because you can do a lot with them to make unique planters. Because the pair I am using for this demonstration has a hole in the knee, I am going to use the bottom half of the pant as one planter and sew off the top to make a second.
In order to clean up the upper portion of the plant, I am cutting the front of the planter opening and then folding in the back part for reinforcement. By doubling up on the fabric at the top of the pants, the planter will be a lot more secure once it is mounted to the wall.
If needed, sew small knots into the fabric to hold your folds in place until it is time to sew up the whole planter.
