Recycled Sweater Hanging Planter

If you don’t have a lot of space in your garden, why not go vertical? Atlanta artist Arwen Fine creates lovely hanging planters from recycled sweaters, like the one pictured above. You can snag one from Arwen or whip up your very own with a felted sweater and waterproof lining. What a great way to grow herbs and other small, edible plants on a patio or balcony!
