DIY Wall Hanging Planters


One of my favorite ways to brighten up a living space, like our small apartment, is with indoor plants. They provide the fresh and bright look I adore, especially in these cold winter months. My plant family keeps growing and it is a fun challenge to find different ways to display them. Without a ceiling hook in our apartment, I was on a mission to find a way to create my own DIY wall hanging planters.

Most hardware stories sell plant hooks. I had seen these primarily used on porches and houses for hanging baskets. After doing some brainstorming, I realized they could easily be brought inside to spruce up our breakfast nook window. With a quick coat of white spray paint, and yes I am painting everything white these days, they fit in perfectly. I potted my Pothos and Elephant Succulent in cute little baskets from Ikea, nailed the hanger into a stud and called it good!

What You Need:

  • Metal Plant Hanger
  • White Spray Paint
  • An Indoor Plant
  • A hanging basket or planter

How To:

  1. Spray paint all sides of your metal plant hanger. Allow drying time for at least 24 hours.
  2. Replant your indoor plant into a hanging basket or pot.
  3. Once your metal plant hanger is dry, screw it into a stud in the desired location of your home.
  4. Hang your potted plant and enjoy!
