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.
