Introduction: Bicycle Frame Recycled As Plant Hanger

About: Retired Math teacher who needs a hobby! So I tinker with stuff: Arduino, welding, my 1958 TR-3 , my tennis serve

Instead of throwing out an old bicycle frame, I found an interesting use for it.: Garden plant hanger .

I removed the seat and handle bars.

Spray painted the frame with Rustoleum.

I welded a supporting frame and attached that to where the wheels would attach.

I used an old pipe wrench as a plant holder attached to the front of the frame and and old socket wrench attached to the seat post.

Then the whole thing was placed near our rock garden/pond and flowers were hung on it..

    What if you were to figure out a way to hook the bicycle frame up to a hose and drill tiny holes in it to also water the plant? I think you have a wonderful project here as is. :D Thank you for posting it.
