Have you been looking for that perfect quirky and kitschy thing to add to your own outdoor space? Well we've got a sneak peek into a recent outdoor home project of Austin's very own Queen of Kitsch, Jennifer Perkins, whom you may remember from her awesome house tour. With the help of her husband, they've added a unique touch to their outdoor space...

We've definitely seen and loved alternative plant holders before on Apartment Therapy. Using restaurant-style fry baskets, Jennifer Perkins and her husband Chris created one-of-a-kind hanging flower baskets for their backyard. While they admit acquiring the fry baskets are a bit of a challenge, everything else is quite simple. Utilizing items like coconut husk for the lining, potting soil and their favorite plants, they were able to create a couple of quirky accents to hang along their fence. Could this be a perfect DIY for your own backyard space? Find the full instructions and more photos on Jennifer's blog.

Also, back in February Laure posted about indoor plantscapes, also known as terrariums that we thought was quite inspiring. Well, Jennifer has been doing many terrarium-themed posts over the past week---you might check them out for inspiration for a little indoor gardening of your own!

What do you think about these fry basket planters? Too kitschy or too cute?
