DIY Hanging Planter Project with Dollar Tree Supplies

With spring just around the corner and the winter blues headed out, it’s time to spruce up my space with some new decor. I figured what better way than to bring the outdoors in with a little DIY hanging planter project. I’ve gathered up all my supplies and you’ll never guess where I found them….The Dollar Tree! I love an “indoor garden,” but I don’t have a green thumb. Check out how I created these easy DIY hanging planters with faux plants.DIY Hanging Planter Project with Dollar Tree Supplies

You are also in for a treat because I’ve joined a few other talented bloggers for a spring blog hop! If you’ve joined me from Leslie’s blog, My 100 Year Old Home, then welcome.

It seems that boho style is on the trend these days. I’ve started seeing a lot of macrame and woven patterns, and I have to say I’m loving it. Even though I do still prefer a vintage, cottage style, I wanted to add a little boho vibe to my home.

Since I’m currently loving gold tones, I figured I would start this DIY project with a little spray paint.

  • Spray Paint of your choice – I chose to use this gold spray paint
  • Planter pots of your choice – I got mine at the Dollar Tree three pots for only a dollar!
  • Cotton twine or any sort of twine
  • Floral Foam – I also purchased from the Dollar Tree
  • Screw driver with a drill bit
  • Faux or real flowers

I finally decided which faux greenery I’m going to use for the hanging planters.

I chose to spend a little more and purchase already made foliage from Target. These little planter pots with the different grasses and greenery were only $7.99 each. The fit perfectly inside the dollar tree planters. I figured I could reuse them if I ever got tired of the hanging planters.

First thing I had to do before I spray painted the planters was to drill three holes in each of them.

Once the holes were drilled, it was time to spray paint. Like I said earlier, I wanted to go with a gold color.

After spray painting the planters, use the yarn to string through the pot.

After I strung all the yarn through the holes, I tied them at the bottom of planter and used a little hot glue to secure it.

I decided to add a few beads at the bottom to “dress it up” a bit. The simple yarn just didn’t look good. And that’s it!

FYI: I hung the hanging planters with a thumb tac.

  8. A blog hop sounds like so much fun, and these are so cute! I am right there with you on the fake foliage-I can’t seem to keep anything alive so I have just stopped trying. Drilling the holes for the twine to go through is genius, too. Love it.
