Brooke from All Things Thrifty has a green thumb and a love for keeping plants inside as much as out. Here, she shows you a quick, easy, and inexpensive project to help display plants in your living area.

Step
Brooke felt a strong urge to give the whole house a good sprucing up. She has a green thumb and absolutely loves plants and flowers. Her goal with this project was to incorporate as many as possible into her decor.
Step
First, she needed to create a nice way to display some of those plants she loves so much. The answer was a homemade flower hanger. She gathered the following items from around the house, and made a quick trip to The Home Depot for the rest:


  • For this project you'll need:

  • One 1x10 Pine Board

  • Stain

  • A jigsaw

  • A large bowl

  • A Sharpie®

  • Sisal rope

  • A drill and a drill bit the size of the sisal rope

  • Small level

  • Hanging hardware {specifically for ceilings}

  • Mr. Clean

  • Febreze®

  • Swiffer® Sweep and Trap™

Step
First, she used a bowl to trace the circle with a Sharpie, and then cut the circle with a jigsaw.
Step
Step
Next, she stained the wood with a Java Gel Stain. But she recommends going with whatever suits your taste. Even if that means unstained with a clear coat.
Step
After staining her wood, she drilled three holes around the outside of her circle. Then, threaded the sisal rope through the holes and tied knots on each side. She made sure to level and hang the planters with her hardware.
Step
Step
She knew she couldn't spruce up without a good cleanup. Brooke enlisted her kids to help with a rub down using her lemony-scented Mr. Clean solution on the counter and the walls, refreshing Febreze in the air, and easy-to-use Swiffer Sweep and Trap on the floors.
Step
The best part? Having her kids actually fight over who gets to clean with the Swiffer!
Step
All in all, the project only took about an hour to complete. The finished product proved a fresh way to bring flowers into her home, and it motivated her to clean even more in the house.
