Hanging Planters Are Easy To Make!

Hanging planters are easy to make!This past week we added hanging planters to our porch. We used white cord, terra cotta planters painted white and Elise’s tutorial to make them. It was so easy and fun! We made six planters to hang around one side of our front porch.

Hanging planters are easy to make! Sometimes there are projects I want to make for, like, a year and just never get around to it. This was one of them! It feels good to check it off my mental list. If you like this idea you’ll probably also love this post turning placemats into hanging planters! What are some projects you’ve been wanting to try for a long time? xo. Elsie

ps. Our front porch makeover will be on the blog next week… can’t wait to share the whole thing with you!!

  • I love these! I can’t wait to try them out, my balcony is definitely in need of a little makeover.

    I’ve been in lust with hanging planters for a while and found some beautiful little ones by Angus and Celeste, I posted some pics of them here – http://emeraldandmay.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/angus-celeste-hanging-gardens.html

    They’re a Melbourne (Aus) duo who do vases and clocks too, so lovely!

  • That’s so funny, I was just perusing your “Crafty” pinboard and this was one of the things you said you wanted to make.. here we are! Congrats on finally getting around to it.. and on your beautiful new porch! I just added some plants and chairs to mine, I feel your happiness 😀

  • i plan on making the same thing for my back patio. There fun, easy and add a little something to your outdoor space.



  • My mother used to have selfmade hangers like those when I was a child. You can create lots of things with chord. I myself have the idea of making a terrarium in my head for month now.

  • Can’t wait to get decorating our balcony! Thanks for the great DIY!

  • Love, love, love all the posts about porches and gardens. Totally zen.


  • I love that you made those pillows! So cute! What a great idea. The porch looks fab!

  • I was just talking to a friend about how I wanted to get some new colorful couch pillows! Thanks for this fun DIY project!


  • Love it! Hanging planters just make spaces look so awesome! And it’s nice to have some greenery that isn’t below eye level!

  • I love the color combination between white pots and green plants. What plants did you use?

  • I like these a lot – when we move into our flat in the Autumn I plan on putting lots of plants around the place like you guys have..for some reason it makes a place feel way more like home!



  • I love easy peasy projects like these!

  • I have a MILLION things on my mental list at all times. I’ve really been meaning to make an industrial desk/shelf unit with recycled wood and metal plumbing joints, a whole bunch of clothing, a dining room table and a bunch of graphic wall art.

    I’ll get there eventually : )

  • It looks lovely! Hanging planters is on my list for my balcony, so I might try this. Thanks! I have been searching online for 6 months or more for some ideas for vertical gardening. I have a wall on my blacony that needed to be dealt with lol. Last week I finally!!! did it, with a trellis made out of some “compost net” and old tin cans. Looks better than I thought!

  • It seems like you guys and Elise just keep trading DIYs back and forth.

  • They look great

  • Lovely…

  • Today we completed a big project that was on our list forever – painting our deck! It feels great to have it done! Next I want to fill it with plants – and these planters are adorable!

  • I live in a very small apartment with no outdoor space, but I thinking hanging something like this in a corner by the window will bring a little of the outside in to me. Lovely.

  • EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for. We’re moving next week and hanging plants out back is near the top of my list. Perfect! 🙂

  • I’ve been wanting to try some wallpapering, but it scares me. Some people are scared of spiders, I’m scared of wallpaper.


  • Love this! Looking forward to the porch post! I got a little green thumb going on too – http://www.turquoiseflamingo.com/2013/04/greenfingers.html
