Every year, we fill baskets hanging on our backyard fence with a coco moss liner and a few plants. They look so welcoming on the gates to get into our backyard.
After a rough winter and birds picking away at the moss liners for supplies to build their nests, the liners from last summer were falling apart. We couldn’t find the right size liners at the garden stores this spring, so we decided to make our own. We found burlaps sacks for $1.00 at the home improvement store.
We pressed the sack inside the basket and poured dirt inside to help the sack form the shape of the basket. Then we filled the baskets with geraniums, climbing petunias and a fine fern.
We trimmed up the burlap sack so there wasn’t so much excess hanging down, and tucked in a few corners.
It was fun to figure out a new way to fill these hanging baskets on a budget by repurposing burlap sacks. Coco moss liners can be expensive so we are loving these new liners.
