…bet you’re wondering what on earth I’ve made now. Well, not all the coffee sacks were perfect: as you’d expect from used sacks some of them had marks on them, and of course some just had very dull things printed on (if you want to see some of the prettier sacks then click here). Not ideal for home furnishings but it would be a shame to waste them.
So I decided to try my hand at making some planters for the garden. I had a vague idea of how to do this, but didn’t work to a set pattern or measurements. The planters aren’t made solely from coffee sacks as I didn’t think that would be sturdy enough, so I used some old canvas that we had lurking in a cupboard.
A perfect fit, despite being too lazy to measure! I’m going to plant these up with salad for the summer, and then come the winter they’ll be easy to fold up and store away. I have a couple more of those hanging plant support things so I might make a couple more planters to fit them, we’ll just have to wait and see.
