I have noticed something very similar to this
showing up in Pintrest lately:
I was making these back 15(ish) years ago.
It's a great repurpose for chairs whose seats
are busted up.
I started out stapling a chicken wire "bowl"
to the seat and lining it with burlap and then
planting directly into it.
I found that setting a hanging planter
(minus the hanger)
in the wire was easier and
didn't dry out as fast.
Just a little heads up if you're thinking
of doing a little garbage picking.
Er, I mean, recycling.
Love how that term has evolved over 15 years.
