Are you tired of your living space looking dull and boring? Well, then why not spruce it up with some nature. There are plenty of ways you can transform a room with the right elements. When it comes to adding vibrance, hanging planters do the job. Not only do they introduce some much-needed greenery, but also tie everything together. Plus, a little extra oxygen never hurt anyone!
You’ve probably seen hundreds of aesthetic home décor ideas on Pinterest featuring plants. While many of these will redirect you to a store selling such products, you can do it yourself in half the money! Whether you want to have an indoor garden or adorn your patio, this cheap and easy DIY idea is remarkable. The answer to ‘How to make a simple hanging planter’ is simple, fun, and surprisingly only a tad time-consuming! To top it off, it gives off immense boho-chic vibes that will have you reveling in your upgraded environment.
Let's Make This Lovely Haning Planter!
Here’s everything you’ll need:
● Potted plant
● Wood polish or paint
● Wooden frame
Grab a wooden frame from your nearest arts and craft store. The rustic, unfinished variety can be bought for a few dollars and if you go with smaller dimensions, you tend to save even more. Preferably, you should get a small-to-medium-sized frame that is strong and thick.
While you don’t necessarily have to paint the frame if you want it to look rough and ready, this step is always appreciated. Among all the hanging planters you can make, those with the sleekest design look best. And the right color of paint makes a huge difference in determining that. A great idea would be to find a color that accentuates the plant’s pot. Regardless, make sure that the paint or wood polish dries properly otherwise it might transfer elsewhere.
Cut the length of the jute rope according to your preferred height of the planter. Tie the rope around one edge of the wooden frame. To ensure everything is in place, you should go with thick jute that is less prone to wear and tear.
Knot the rope around every edge. Just like what you did in the previous step, you need to repeat the process for each end of the frame. Be careful when cutting the length to make it all equal.
