My Goal today is to show you How To Make a Flower Basket from a Spice Rack. Sounds crazy, right? Now you will see why it is one of my fave projects…

I started out by browsing the aisles at Lowe’s. It’s always fun, isn’t it?
After walking around through the nursery area, I kept thinking about how I wish I had a space for a garden on our balcony or front porch. I looked at a few ideas, and then it hit me. I could make my OWN container for my OWN little garden.
To make my project, I used:
a spool of jute
hot glue gun
fresh potted flowers
I started out by wrapping the jute around the “frame” and rims of the rack.
My next step was to weave the jute in and out of the wired front. Easy, right? It did take awhile. And sometimes I would need to tie and hot glue the jute together, because I didn’t want to unravel.
Wow, what a difference, right? As a hanger, I tied a one last string of jute to each side at the top.
Now, the fun begins. Adding the flowers…
As a final touch, I added a tiny chalkboard sign.
Can you believe this use to be a spice rack/organizer? NOW, I can have a small container garden on our front porch all year long.
Can you see why this was such a fave project of mine? How To Make a Flower Basket from a Spice Rack couldn’t be any easier, could it? I think I need to make another one for the balcony door, don’t you?
Wouldn’t it look fabulous as Autumn Decor, as well?
