Thrifty Thursday-Hanger Trellis

Hopefully, spring has made its way to your home.
It's a great time to complete projects, big and small.
Here's an idea that came to me on my morning bike ride yesterday.

 This is one of the potted plants we have on our entryway outside.
It's got pansies, violets and a morning glory vine growing.
 The vine was starting to outgrow the pot.

On the aforementioned bike ride, I found hangers in someone's recycle bin.
I've been scrounging them for a friend,
and then I thought, maybe I'll just save one for myself.
It was simply stretched with needle nose pliers to form a diamond shape.
We love recycling around here!

The curved part (that hangs on the closet rod) was left intact
and slipped into the soil.

Then the length of vine was wound around the bent part.
It would be cute as a heart-shaped trellis too.
It pays to be a scrapper!
