Make a Hanging Hoop Planter

I have a bad crafting habit of using the inside part of embroidery hoops for projects (like this chandelier and these wind chimes), but not the outside part of the hoop.  But I always hang onto that outside part, just in case a project comes along that call for one.  And here is that project!  Alex from Northstory came up with this great hanging planter idea that uses an embroidery hoop to mount a bowl and create a planter that is as inexpensive as it is beautiful.  Imagine your porch lined with these, and your plants spinning in the summer breeze.  Now I am glad that I saved those extra bits leftover from previous projects!  [how to make a hanging hoop planter]
