Do you want to have some great ideas for hanging planters? You are just right for this season, right? With this easy-to-create idea you can celebrate the clean lines and the cheap design. Through the appropriate accessories you can also create different projects. You can plant them in a group to make a bigger impression.

Read more about the design details here.


I will help you to realize this project by describing the required accessories and the various steps of the realization. In advance, however, it should be emphasized that you should work with small, very light pots. This could be an aquasection.

These flower heads are only medium sized and so they can be easily photographed. However, I recommend small pots for maximum stamina.

Do not forget that succulents are ideal for DIY hanging flower containers. They are not only easy to care for, but they radiate in such a vessel!

Accessories for DIY hanging planters

You will need this when you start the project:

– Airy flower container

– Drilling machine

– Durable cord (I have used parachute cables)

– Metal shower curtain rings

– Hot glue gun

Useful materials for the DIY project

If you select the appropriate green plants, also consider the shading of the plant container you are going to use. I love the look of the succulents in different shades next to the green pot.

Since the planter will also hang over your heads, those which are conspicuous and provide more height and volume will be suitable. So you will be visible from the ground from your point of view.

Stages of the realization of this plant project

  1. Drill a hole on both sides of the plant container

I will be honest with you. The olive plant container was a bit difficult to handle? Make sure that the flower head you choose is not too thick. Light metal would be a very good choice. Alternatively, you can opt for not very heavy wood or plastic. If the flower head slips easily, you should drill very carefully. It would also not be a bad idea to clamp the flower head at the place where it is fixed. Then you can also drill to ensure more safety.

Perhaps, however, it would be better to wear protective goggles.

  1. Cut the cord to the desired length and pull the two ends through the holes of the plant container. So you form a long loop as in the picture below

Knot the cord several times to make the whole thing extra secure. If you then pull them to the inside of the plant container, there will remain extra material. So you could make a loop and then you should pull it. So you can still tie a node for more security.

  1. When you are done with the node on one side, you should start with the other

Do not worry if there are some differences. One will find a way to correct the length if one has to hang the pot.

  1. Cut off the excess part of the cord and then smear the ends with the glue. Press gently against the knot to keep them in place

Be careful when working with hot glue. If you do not know the temperature exactly, do not take any risks. If you still need to attach the cord to the appropriate location, you can still use tweezers.

  1. Now you can wrap the ends of long, looped cords around a metal ring. Then close the ring

The shower curtain ring brings everything together and serves as a loop for the process of hanging. If one side of the plant container is longer than the other, wrap it around the shower enclosure ring. So you can catch the loose ends.

  1. Time to plant

I will finish today’s article with a series of tips that make it possible for the project to be more gentle. You should start by placing stones and crystals in larger quantities.

Tips and Tricks

This project works best with small flower heads. Are you concerned about security? If so, you should consider a third hole and another string that you pull over to secure the whole thing. Attach the cord and then put all three cords together on a metal shower cubicle ring.

Security concerns

Of course, the larger plants should go through tighter wires. The olive plant can benefit not only from the third hole. One could also use a metal chain in this case.

Depending on where you hang the upper part of the flower container, you may not be able to see the plant from the most favorable point of view. Add a shower cubicle ring on the surface and then turn it in another direction. So you will be able to see it at its best. An additional ring can be a successful method by which the flower head will hang lower.

I find the use of flower heads in two colors great. Together, they form a great composition against the wall behind it. Why, then, do you not place them in front of the neighbors?
