Plants and basketball may seem like an unlikely match at first glance, but one Etsy shop proves that notion wrong by creating striking plants out of—you guessed it—basketballs.

Hoops & Horticulture takes various basketballs ranging in color and pattern and turns them into hanging and standing plant pots. They make an eye-catching addition to any shelf, or can be placed on a plant stand like these (plant stands are sold separately).

The hanging planters, like this one that features a classic Spalding basketball above, have four grommets and come with a sturdy rope for easy hanging. You can pot a plant directly in it, or just drop in an already-potted plant with ease.

Both the hanging and standing planters feature a plastic rim around the opening, and the mini basketball planters start at $45 while the full-size ranges from $75 to $110, depending on the design. Speaking of design…

Hoops & Horticulture make a variety of designer basketballs, like this floral print Spalding.

And since tie-dye is making a comeback, this hanging planter made from a Chinatown Market basketball is a unique way to incorporate the design trend into any space.

While there’s plenty of inspiration on Hoops & Horticulture’s Instagram account, there are only a select designs available for purchase at a time. However, there is good news: the Etsy shop restocks their stash regularly, so as long you check periodically, you’ll snag the basketball planter of your dreams. It’s time to give your plant decor a much-needed break from all that macrame.

Now that you know what to get the basketball enthusiast in your life, you can check @hoopsandhorticulture for shop updates and weekly restock announcements.
