PRETTY PLANT ART
Bring a blank wall to life with this simple hanger for fragrant foliage.
Make a hanger for bunches of foliage.
Suspend bunches of eucalyptus and luxuriate in its calming aroma.
ONE Measure 60cm from end of each dowel, mark with pencil and cut with a saw. You now have 3 x 60cm lengths.
TWO Roughly sand dowels and smooth ends, then paint with interior wood stain using the foam brush. If necessary, apply a couple of coats, leaving to dry in between coats.
THREE Once dry, lay dowels on floor, spaced roughly 20cm apart. Take the end of the ball of wool and tie a knot 5cm in from the end of the bottom dowel. Take wool to the dowel above and tie a knot around it. Repeat for the top dowel.
FOUR Measure off about 60cm wool (to allow for hanging) then tie a knot around the top dowel at the other end. Repeat for the middle dowel and then the bottom dowel. Use scissors to snip off remaining wool.
FIVE Make 2 bunches of eucalyptus (we used dried gypsophila, too) and tie with wool. Tie bunches to dowels.
SIX Suspend your hanger from the wall with a small picture hook or nail.
Go wild For more vibrant colour, hang sprays of winter-flowering native plants.
