Vintage Funnel Planter

A few years ago I pinned a picture to one of my Pinterest boards. It was of a vintage funnel that had been converted to a hanging planter.  Imagine my surprise when, a few months later, my friend Kathy brought me a funnel from her annual expedition to her hometown in North Dakota! She had no idea I was looking for one!
I told my Hubbers my plan and put the funnel away.  A few weeks ago I dragged it out and asked for his assistance. He drilled some holes, attached some chain and I was good to go! I planted a flowering succulent in it.
I love unusual items in my gardens, feel they bring character to my outdoor spaces.  I love repurposing things, too. I bet the original user of this funnel never thought it would hold flowers!
