Wall planters are very popular these days. Just the other day we went to the farm for our annual tradition and they had several different vertical planters. They were so pretty but can cost a pretty penny. So, I prefer to make one myself. There are lots of ways to do this. Here is one way I created a wall planter.
DIY Wall Planter Made Easy
First, I purchased the glass vases at the dollar store and thought about how can I hang them. They are colorful and attractive. And since they had a curved top, it would be easier to hang them by wrapping something around the neck of the vase. Cost: $3.00
I headed to the hardware store and purchased these adjustable plumbing rings to help attach the dollar store glass vases to the chicken wire picture frame. Cost: $3.00
Then, I found a clipboard frame in the clearance section at the nearby craft store. I love that the frame was already painted and rustic looking. And, to top it off it was affordable only $15.00 and it was very well supported chicken wire in the back. Tip: When looking for DIY home craft items, check the clearance section and online coupons to bring down the cost.
Tip: If you want to make your own chicken wire frame, find a wooden wide frame that you like and purchase a small amount of chicken wire to cover enough to overlap the frame back sides. Then, using a staple gun, staple the chicken wire securely to the back of the frame. I recommend every 2 inches or so to make sure the chicken wire is fully secure all around the frame.
To attach the vases to the chicken wire, disconnect the plumbing rings and attach them around the vases and through the chicken wire and reattach in the back. Evenly distribute the vases and repeat this process.
I added water and used ivy from another plant in my home. Though, any plants will work. You can even add roses or your favorite flowers and change it out every few weeks for a fresh look.
The entire project took about 30 minutes to put together. Total cost was $21.00. Not bad for a wall decoration and planter, right? What do you think? Please leave a comment below. It looks so pretty and I really enjoy doing projects like this because they are so easy to put together and are unique to my home. The best part is that I found all the pieces fairly quickly and didn't break the bank.

Oh, my, that's just lovely! I'd have to use fake flowers or plants since I don't have the gift of the green thumb. But it would be fun to try - you make it look so easy!
That is a nice and easy planter. I will try this at my apartment, I bet it will look nice.
Thanks for sharing.
Simple yet beautiful DYI project it is! I have an Idea to decorate for our coming festival time. Thanks for sharing!
What a wonderful project! It's so funny - when I lived in Maui the one rule the landlord had was no hanging anything on the walls. Now that I'm in a new (much larger) place, with no such restrictions, I feel a bit intimidated by all these blank walls. Where to begin?! As much as I love nature, a wall planter seems the perfect place. Thank you!
Very resourceful. And it looks great.
Love the planters. I love the different colors and the project seems relatively easy. I'm sure you can do a lot with things found on clearance when you're creative.
Very cool idea, Sabrina. I can see where a wall planter would be the perfect solution to bring life and colour to a space. Thx for sharing!
It's great for small homes and apartments too.
Have to admit I had never even heard of wall planters. Regardless of that your wll planter is a really cute wall decoration.
The coloured bottles are simply beautiful and would look great hanging in the kitchen. I have seen similar in IKEA.
This is a really simple and affordable way to decorate a wall, and it's great that you can always mix things up by changing the plants or flowers that you put in the vase.
