It’s no secret that we’re a little obsessed with plants around here! Today we’re teaming up with DarbySmart to share a fun DIY project for an extra pretty vertical planter. We love how gold and pops of color add a little something to our space!Step 1. Start with your 3 simple, terra cotta pots (ours are 4 inches wide at the top) and spray paint them white and allow them to dry completely (optional: start with a coat of primer, if spray paint is looking too splotchy). Then, use tape to mask off the top of the pot and spray paint the bottom part gold. Step 2. Cut two pieces of leather cording 6 feet long each. Fold them in half and tie off a section that is about 2 inches tall, this will become the top hanger for your project. Measure 12 inches down from the knot and tie off any other section. Repeat this step two more times until there are three tied off sections below the top knot. Step 3. Add more embroidery thread to give each section the look of a friendship bracelet. Step 4. Add a plant to each of the three pots. Place them in to cording with a knotted base below each pot. Use super glue to secure each cord to each pot.This planter works great for outdoors, but we thought it was cutest hanging in our dining room!
Here’s a shot of them hanging outside! If you want a quick and easy way to try this project yourself, DarbySmart was kind of enough to make kits of all the materials we picked to make this project, and they’ll ship everything you need right to your door. You can find the kit here. What do you think? Will you try making your own set soon? We hope so! xoxo. Elsie
