What I used for this project: An old pendant light fixture (mine cost under $5.00 at a thrift store); spray primer; chrome spray paint; jute gardening twine; drawer pull/knob; planting soil; plastic planter liner; and flowers.
First, I disassembled the light fixture, removing and discarding the old cord and components that I didn’t need.

|Remove glass and spray paint the metal parts. Yes, I use a diaper box for my spray paint projects!|

I planted my flowers inside the plastic planter liner, and then inserted it into the light fixture. In order to hang my planter, I tied a knot toward the top end of my twine creating a loop.
