DIY Hanging Planter

DIY Plant Hanger

A while back Dustin bought me this lovely hanging plant. I didn’t realize in the hurry to hang it in it’s new home that there was nothing to catch the water. That is, until I watered it the first time and it came pouring out of the bottom! It was a pretty funny moment, trying desperately to catch all the water with cupped hands.

Since then I’ve wanted to find a cute container so I could hang it up again. I never see anything I like, nor do I want to spend any money! Today, I came across¬†this small vintage pot that I’ve been wanting to convert into a planter anyway. It was a whopping $1.91 at my local thrift shop, and the wooden handle simply unscrews. This little plant fit perfectly in the vintage pot! Next, how do I hang it?

A couple days ago I came across Megan’s new book Generation T: Beyond Fashion, and there was a project like this. I have no idea how it was made according to her idea, but I decided to try something similar! I am really pleased with how it turned out. And, I love the little extra bits hanging around the top, it makes me happy.

Hope you enjoy the photos. I guess I went a little crazy! If you want to see more, click here.

    [...] I have a fondness for these colored pots. Currently, I’m using one as a hanging planter seen here. Typically, you’ll find them in bad condition for cooking, but they make wonderful holders [...]

    That’s not particularly structurally stable. When you water or brush against this, what prevents the pot from sliding right out?

    I’d suggest a single band around the top of the pot, right under the lip… this could be a single strip of a black tee shirt, pulled so that it has that curl, or a bit of twine, or anything that plays well with your tee braids and pot… tie it snug and then stitch-tack it to your three braided cords.

    Disaster averted.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?
