Introduction: Recycled Mug Plant Hangers
In this instructable I'll show you how I turned some old chipped mugs into an adorable collection of strawberry planters which are hung on my garden fence.
Materials you will need:
Tools you will need:
4mm masonry drill bit
Center punch (optional)
Step 1: Gather Materials
First you will need to get some cups and drill some holes in them for drainage. This is particularly important if you live in quite a rainy climate so the pots don't get water logged.
You will also need a very sharp masonry bit for this as the ceramic mugs are very hard to drill.
Step 2: Carefully Drill Holes
I drilled a few of the holes but it was really difficult due to the material so I ended up just drilling a starting hole and then gently tapping a screw through the hole with a hammer.
Step 3: Fill and Hang
Now it's simply a case of filling them with soil and hanging them in your preferred location. I've hung them on a shaded fence so the soil doesn't get full sun during the day otherwise it would dry out too quickly. Give them a good soak in to help the roots get established.
