Narcissi can’t help but cheer you up: that's why the Narcissus is the Houseplant of the month for February. The fresh colours and clamorous trumpets help you get through the final dark days, and the attractive sleek lines also fit perfectly with the graphic style trends so popular right now. Hang this modern basket on your coat hook and you’ll be able to enjoy weeks of cheerful welcomes when you come in the door. It's very easy to make, even if you’re not so good with your hands.
What you need:
Lacquered metal basket (Ikea)
Pots of narcissi
Piece of pond liner or tarpaulin (a sturdy rubbish sack may also suffice)
Rope for hanging up the basket
A piece of black fabric and a red T-shirt
Knife and scissors
Weave a couple of strips of black fabric through the bottom of the basket up to the top edge of the pots of narcissi. Cut a strip out of the red T-shirt and pull it round the top edge of the basket.
Cut the plastic generously around the basket, and place it in the basket in such a way that a base with standing edges is created.
Take the narcissi out of the plastic pots and place them close together in the basket. Tie black rope to the handles and hang the basket up: for example on the coat hook or another spot where you will see it regularly.
