Bloomers Plant Hanger

This is a recycling craft using children's pants as a holder for potted plants. Quite unique and cute. I saw the idea in a Birds and Blooms magazine and used it myself.


Approximate Time: 1 hour


  • child's longs pants*
  • sewing thread and needle
  • plastic bags
  • plant with hanger
  • twine
  • fabric paint

*The pants I used are a kind of water proof fabric. This worked very well.


  1. Use fabric paint to paint the words on the pants. Some suggestions are: Blooming Pants, Bloomer Plants, Petunia Bloomers, Potted Pants. As you can see, you can use a twist on the words and come up with something unique.
  2. Ad

  3. Let dry.
  4. Stuff with plastic bags, shipping peanuts, or plastic shipping wrap. The kind that has the bubbles in. Remember it will be getting wet outside. Don't use newspaper.
  5. Sew the pant legs closed or pin, glue or tie at the bottom.
  6. If the pants have belt loops, you can hang it by tying twine to the loops and the pot. If they have elastic waist you can use the plastic hanger already on the pot and stretch the pants around the pot. Maybe tie around it if it's loose.
