You will need:
~Glass beads (Available at craft stores like Michael’s or online)
Use a 40% off coupon and these large containers of assorted beads will be around $6.00. You’ll be able to make at least two or three hangers with one pack.
~Crimp beads (optional)Use a crimping bead at then end to keep the beads from sliding off:
You can also just bend the end of the wire up if you don’t want to use the crimping beads.
Once you’re finished stringing the beads, insert the exposed wire end of each strand of the beaded hanger into each pre-made hole in the your hanging basket. NOTE: Factory baskets/pots are typically manufactured with either three or four pre-made holes. If there is no rim with factory-drilled holes, simply use your needle-nose pliers to wrap the wire end of the beaded hanger around the top wire of your wire hanging basket.Next, again using needle-nose pliers, carefully bend each end of the beaded hanger strand around the hole until snug and secure.
Finally, hang your new bead-accentuated plant on a sturdy hook and enjoy!
At Michael’s they sell the bead packs in solid colors or in multi-colors. Somehow the purple pack ended up in my cart!
Now instead of being plain and boring, your plant hangers are works of art! It’s like jewelry for your plants!
