Get fancy with a plant holder

Hanging plant feature

Bring your home to life with a hanging plant holder. It’s a gorgeous way to display your indoor plants.

You will need: Resene testpots in your choice of colours. We used Resene Sassy and Resene Twilight, paintbrush, string, masking tape, small wooden crate.

Top tip: Use other colour combinations and designs to suit your décor. Or for a touch of extra glamour use Resene FX Metallics as the accent colour.
