Colander hanging baskets
Not just for spaghetti, your trusty metal colander can be recycled as a stylish hanging basket. This one requires minimal prep work – these household staples already have holes in for drainage and they come in assorted colors too. If you can’t find the finish you’re after, you could always spray paint a plain one if you want to. Simply plant up with pretty flowers and then string up outside your front door. Lovely.
