There are many metal objects available to use for container planting, such as tubs, troughs, cans, buckets, cups, bowls, etc. While browsing through an antique mall, I found a metal basket that I thought was quite distinctive. The question I asked myself was, "What do I do with it?" My answer: "Plant succulents, of course!"

|I couldn't agree more. BTW - I use weed cloth at the bottom of my baskets to keep from losing the soil.
Your basket looks fabulous! Very, very impressive and professionally done! Way to go! Thanks for sharing your how to of making one!
