Rusty Wire Succulent Door Hanger



Back in February, I believe.... I drove to a Antique shop called Junk Asylum in Eldridge, Iowa. Hubby found it while working there one day. (He's a heating and air tech) He said I would love it. So the next day I made a trip there and found a few goodies. One was a rusty wire hanger. Thought it was pretty cool and didn't know what I was going to do with it but I knew I would think of something. So today I turned it into a hanging succulent door hanger. I just love succulents!! They are so interesting and different.


This is the hanger before I added my succulents.

I just took some coco fiber liner and made a pocket and filled it with soil. Then I poked holes in the liner and planted my little succulents. Easy as can be! Can't wait for the succulents to grow and fill out!




One of the succulents I planted in the top is a trailing plant. It's called Dorotheanthus ‘Mezoo’

Very interesting plant with a gorgeous feathery bright pink flower!

My tulips are about done blooming. At least I got to see a few bloom this year that the deer didn't eat!


Another week is flying by!!! Have a great evening!!!
