My mother gave me a fern for Mother’s Day. Instead of hanging it up on a hook, I decided I wanted it by the front door. Only problem was, I had no plant stand. So, I started thinking outside the box. Here’s what I came up with:

A jute bag with leather handles I found in the garage.

A plastic pot from the potting bench.

See where I’m going with this…

Place the pot (open side up) inside the bag.

Nest the fern inside the pot.

Place by the front door.

It looks good and it’s hiding the electrical outlet next to the door. Watering isn’t a problem either because the bag is an open weave. Necessity IS the mother of invention. 🙂
