DIY – Easy String Hanging Planter

This is my first DIY project after a long time. During summer I was impressed by all these beautiful hanging planters that were featured in several photos for living room and balcony decoration. So, I remembered the wooden slices that I had asked my father-in-law to cut during previous Christmas and I thought it would be perfect in order to make my own string hanging planter with the easiest and more affordable way.

For this project I used only three materials and, of course, planter pots with my favourite succulent:

  • a wooden slice
  • twine 
  • scissors

 

Step 1

Firstly, I decided what height my hanging planter was going to be. Then, I cut four to six long strings of twine. The more strings, the better. The strings give stability to the planter.

Steps 2

I took the strings and made a strong knot in the one side, leaving some space for a cute tassel. In the other edge, I made a noose with another strong knot.You can also tie a ring instead of making a simple noose.

Step 3

Place the wooden slice inside the strings and adust it in order to be straight. Choose a light-weight planter pot and your own string hanging planter is ready to be hanged. For heavier planters, you can use rope instead of twine.
