Springtime Crafts

I'd like to take the credit for this cute plant holder, but I can't. I saw it on someone else's blog.....I am not sure whose. 
Of course, I had long ago thrown out my banana hanger. So I was on the lookout for another. When you shop the thrift stores like I do it's not hard to fine one for a $1 or 2.
This started out as a light colored wood banana hanger, I painted it white and distressed it a bit. Does it need more? Right now it lives in my house and the African Violet is for display only. All 3 of mine are blooming (thanks Carolee). When it warms up it will go outside with some small flowering plant. 

I also made another flip flop wreath and I WILL NEVER MAKE ANOTHER ONE....unless I can figure out an easy way to adhere the flip flops to the wreath form. I think they are so darn cute and summery! 
Naturally the wreath and flip flops are from the thrift store.

I'm not really proud of this one, but it certainly adds some color to the fence...which hubby needs to power wash yet. He does in in between golf outings. 

Thanks for stopping by and if you want my blog in your email (so you know when I post something and you can read when you feel like it) please sign up at the upper right hand column of this page. 


  1. Both projects are just so sweet. I love the idea for the banana hanger. Very clever! The wreath is so cute and colorful. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very fun and cute wreath!!

  3. Hi,
    I love the wreath! Fun!! I just might try it ;-) thank you for the tips.

  4. Linda, I love the wreath and that makes a cute plant hanger, too. It is so good to see you able to do things again. You have come a long way, baby!!!! xo Diana

  5. I just went through your blog. Very nice! I love Lake Michigan and have been there often. Of course I don't live that far away so I can go there pretty much as often as I want to. When I'm not working that is. Work it kind of puts a damper on things some times. LOL. Thank you for visiting my blog.

  6. If you find another banana hanger that you don't want, remember me! Your violet is doing wonderfully! Glad to hear that you aren't putting it outside. The wreath is so darn cute but I don't have a place to hang one.
