Neon Hanging Coconut Planter DIY

Neon Hanging Coconut Planter DIY

Neon Hanging Coconut Planter DIY

Have you ever crafted with coconuts? Well, I gave it a try a few weeks ago and it was a bit of challenge. The first thing you need to figure out when it comes to coconut crafts: how do you open the darn thing? I went through a few before I finally got the hang of it (I kept cracking them down the side, instead of across the middle). Once you figure out how to crack a coconut in half (I shared how to do that on the HP Create blog), you can turn your cracked coconut into my lovely Neon Hanging Coconut Planter DIY. I’m so happy with how these turned out (even though it took a bit of process to get the coconut cracking process down).

Supplies you will need for this project:

  • 1 coconut
  • 1 inch wide painter’s tape
  • Large knife
  • Primer paint
  • Neon acrylic paint (I used Martha Stewart Lightning Bug and Date Night Rose)
  • Higher number grit sandpaper and lower number grit sandpaper
  • Heavy duty fishing line
  • Dremel or drill with ⅛ inch bit
  • A Pencil
  • Small plant (preferably something from the succulent family)
  • Dirt (cactus dirt for succulents)
  • Free printable (you can find it on the original blog post over on HP Create)
  • Optional item: Super fine steel wool
  • Optional item: Hot glue gun and hot glue

Picnic Style: DIY Bon Appétit Crown

Picnic Style: DIY Bon Appétit Crown

One of the sure signs of spring each year is the resurgence of the flower crown hair piece. While I love this all organic accessory, I’ve found myself yearning for more. I want to imagine myself strolling along the Champs-Élysées in something that not only looks impeccable, but satisfies my soul – and appetite. The DIY Bon Appétit Crown does just that. This plateau de fromages is adorned with fresh, farm-to-table grapes, artisanal cheeses, and a hand forged, rustic baguette. Pair it with a crisp wine and you have yourself the crowning glory of hors d’oeuvres. This beautiful crown is the perfect snack on the go.

Picnic Style: DIY Bon Appétit Crown

Learn how to make the DIY Bon Appétit Crown…

1) Use a piece of wire to make the base of your crown

2) Wrap the wire with floral tape

3) Use wire to fasten grapes to the crown for your base.

4) Once you have a solid base, fill the gaps with fresh foliage.

5) Use a cookie cutter to cut out flower shapes in your cheese, and fasten them to the crown with pins.

6) Cut thin slices of baguette and place them around the crown. You can attach them with wire or pins as well.

7) Continue adding until your crown is complete.

8) Wear it proudly and enjoy every bite! Maybe hang out with a goat while you’re wearing it?
