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.
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.

The rest of my supplies:
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.
What do you think? I think my DIY planters fit in well with the rest of my dining room!
