A shopper has transformed an everyday kitchen appliance into a stunning wall hanging.
Posting to a Facebook group page, the Australian woman revealed how she turned a $2 mini fry basket from Kmart into a piece of functional art.
She straightened the handle, used two plastic cups for draining and catching water, and added succulent plants.
Facebook users were keen to ‘steal’ the idea, with one commenting: ‘So clever.’

‘First, straighten the handle, then use two plastic cups, one for a drainage hole and a second one for catching water,’ she revealed online.
The woman added that she placed a layer of coloured paper into the bottom of the basket, ‘to make it interesting.’
Fellow Kmart shoppers were quick to take to the comments section, saying they were keen to ‘steal’ the idea.
‘Stealing this idea to hang some herbs in my kitchen,’ wrote one, while another said: ‘Fabulous idea.’
‘Very cute,’ added one, along with another who commented: ‘So clever.’
Another savvy shopper: As a renter, with a love of greenery, Rebecca Grining, of Geelong, previously revealed how a $27 rack from Kmart (pictured) could be transformed into a hanging garden
This is not the first time Kmart shoppers have shared their unique hacks online.
A mother with a love of greenery previously revealed to 9Honey how she turned a $27 clothing rack into a fabulous indoor garden.
Rebecca Grining, of Geelong, Victoria, rents her home which means drilling holes into walls and ceilings to hang plants isn’t something she’s able to do.
But rather than let this stop her from creating a lush indoor space, Ms Grining turned to Kmart to help her find a solution.
A photo saw a tall, black, industrial-style clothes rack with four plants hanging from the top rail.

Ms Grining also revealed details of how she created her hanging garden saying that as well as using the rack, she sourced other pieces from second-hand shops.
‘The four-tiered hanger was in stock (at Kmart), the middle is an op-shopped cane basket with the Kmart macrame hanger, the black and grey hanger was from pillow talk,’ she told 9Honey.
Ms Grining explained that she also removed the fabric panel at the bottom of the rack as this didn’t serve a purpose.
The rack was constructed according to instructions, without the fabric panel. Hangers were added before the final rod was put in place.
