How to Make a Coconut Shell Hanging Basket
Obtain the things you'll need (below).
Split the coconut shell (the center, hard, round part of the coconut - not the husk) evenly in half.This can be done by sawing or hand cracking - your choice.
Bake the shell in a 350 degree F oven for around 20 minutes to dry out the "meat" and separate it from the shell.
Remove the partially dried coconut meat from the shell.Eat it if you like...
Measure the circumference of the shell.
Divide the circumference by three.
Mark hole placement for three holes approximately half an inch (one centimeter) from the edge of the lip and equally spaced around the circumference.
Drill inch (0.6 cm) holes at your marks.
Tie a strand of jute into each hole.You can get more elaborate with more strands if you like but the basic handing basket needs only three strands to be functional.
Slide beads or bored shells onto the jute for decoration.
Gather the long ends of the jute together and tie them in a knot approximately two feet from the shell "basket".Take care to hold the basket perpendicular to your strings so that it will hang level.
QuestionCan I coat the shell to avoid it from spoiling?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou could use some kind of clear sealant or simply paint the outside of the shell with a bright paint color. Alternatively, you could smooth the shell with a knife which might also prevent spoilage.Thanks!
QuestionDo coconut shells attract ants or rodents?Top AnswererThe shell is a very hard and dense wood. Therefore, it is not a material that attracts insects or other creatures.Thanks!
QuestionAny way to do this other than drilling?Top AnswererThe cords can be tied together to form a net around the coconut shell. Use a glue like E6000 to secure it to the shell. Super glue is not recommended as it will get absorbed into the porous cord.Thanks!

- Alternately, you can drill four, equidistant holes... fold two jute lengths in half, lark's head them to a ring, and tie the resulting four ends through the four holes. This takes a bit more measuring and finicky adjusting to get the basket level though.
- If you cut your jute to 6 or 8 feet (1.8 or 2.4 m) in length and fold it in half, you can "lark's head" your jute to the coconut shell. This will make your hanging lines sturdier(two ply) and also allow you to do some rudimentary macramé on the hanging lines.
