I really look after my house plants. I water them every week and take pride in how healthy and shiny they look. I decided to make legs for a few basket planters I have punch needled. * SEE HOW TO PUNCH NEEDLE BASKETS HERE

DIY wooden legs for your planter
I saw these wooden DIY wooden legs on baskets but the are quite expensive to buy. So I decided to use a wooden brush handle. I paid €4 for a brush handle in my local hardware shop.

Use masking tape to get the perfect stripe

Using a small drill bit .  Drill a small hole in the top of the wood

Place the screw and the hinge inside the basket and screw on each leg. I used a phillips head screw driver. I found this part hard as I don’t have great upper body strength. I got my husband to do this for me.

Place three hinges inside the basket
Place the hinges where you want the wooden legs to go. I used two screws in each hinge.

Before and After
These floor tiles are painted/stencilled. See how I painted my floor tiles here:
I really enjoyed this DIY. If I do it again. I will make smaller size legs and use a smaller size basket.
