Bullet Planter

Now is the time to shop for plastic eggs to make midcentury bullet planters.  You will also need 20 gauge craft wire.  You can use stronger wire if you choose.

  1. Cut off the plastic hinge which joins the egg.
  2. Cut three 6 inch lengths of wire.
  3. Bend the top of each wire to hook over the rim of the egg.  Use tape to hold in place while working.
  4. Twist the wires firmly at the bottom of the egg.
  5. Adjust and straighten the wire legs so the planter can stand. Remove the tape.
  6. Add a plant and enjoy!
