Two Easy Flower Pot Hangers For The Junk Garden

Do you know what this is?  If you are a northern girl like me chances are you know it is an ice fishing hole skimmer.  This is an older one as the newer ones have a plastic circle with holes.  I purchased this one for $2 at the thrift shop.


I bent the skimmer so it was flatter and could hold a flower pot.  But still it would be questionable if a strong wind could knock the pot off, so I put a screw up through a hole in the skimmer.

Then I put a washer and a nut on the screw.  I used a washer that was slightly smaller than the hole so water could drain but the pot would still be fastened on pretty tightly.

I added dirt and a red petunia that I just purchased on clearance for $1, and hung it on my picket fence.

Now that was easy!

And, hanger number two is even easier!  Just hang a rusty old spring from a hook and a pail of flowers from the spring.

  1. Fun! The antique place I worked for got a bunch of ice fishing skimmers from a picker from MN. They called them soup ladles. I corrected them ;) and let them know what they are really used for. I love it as a plant holder.
