Recycle Metal Cans into Hanging Flower Baskets for a Spring Party!comments (7) May 3rd, 2009
3. Cut a generous length of wire (mine was about 2 feet long), slip it through the first hole you drilled in step 2, and form a wrapped loop, clipping off the end after you've coiled it three times. (If you'd like a wrapped loop 101, I have a short video showing how I make them here.) Repeat with the other two holes so that you have three wire tails to form a hanger later on.
4. If you'd like, slip a few durable beads you like onto each wire strand. I alternated clear and pink on each one.
5. Now add a thin layer of pebbles for good drainage at the bottom of the can.
