Repurpose A Wire Basket Into A Hanging Flower Planter

We have been having the most beautiful weather here in San Diego so my mind has been focusing on working outside in the garden.  On one of my recent trips to the consignment shop to drop some items off I ran across this wire basket for $1.50.  When I came home with a bunch of flowers from the nursery, I thought it would be fun to repurpose the basket into a hanging flower planter!  Funny thing, the day I planted and worked on this post (Tuesday) it was raining all day so I put on my rain boots and rain jacket and went to work.

Plastic Bag
A mix of Spring flowers and Succulents

I inserted a plastic bag into the wire basket to use it as a liner so the soil would not fall out and to retain moisture. I added a few holes for drainage. 
Next, I added my soil so it reached halfway up the basket.
I planted various flowers in the front and succulents in the back for height.
Top it off with more soil.
Inbetween the basket and the plastic bag, I added various types of moss.
I already had hooks on our fence so I placed it above our vegetable garden.
It’s our monthly thrift store chalnege, come see what everyone made over!
