We love a good diy, and once we found this one we couldn't stop making these things!
These make great gifts and one ball of chunky yarn will go a long way. We'd make plant hangers and use glass jar, coffee cans and clay pots as the vessel. For some extra flair, you can also grab a tree branch, add some c-hooks, and make a cute hanging garden.
Our favorite tutorial on this process can be found here.
