A content creator on TikTok named @olivebranchcottage shows us how to do it. All you need is a planter (like this one available for $50 at Target), an empty flower pot, scissors (optional), and your favorite flowering plants in hanging baskets, or greenery options such as the Boston fern from Lowe’s for $30.

Ready to give this TikTok hack a try? Before proceeding, you need to ensure your planter can easily accommodate the hanging plant basket filled with blooms.

With the planter ready, put an empty flower pot upside down at the center to serve as the elevated base of the hanging plant basket. Next, place the hanging plant basket of blooms on top of the inverted flower pot, making sure that no part of the hanging plant basket is visible to onlookers. Depending on the style of the hanging plant basket, you may need to use a pair of scissors to cut the hangers or hanging mechanism so none of it shows, or you may simply unfasten the hooks of the hanger from the plant basket and put it away for future use. And voila! You now have a beautifully lush blooming plant infusing life into what would otherwise be a dull, empty corner or section of your home. You can do this for both your indoor and outdoor spaces.

Of course, when you finally have time to do some repotting so you can put some of your favorite plants in their dedicated planters, you may do so. For now, these instant flowering plants are all you need to achieve stunningly beautiful displays at home.
