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.
