The only thing more beautiful than a hanging plant is a group of plants hung together. It’s a great way to add a whole lot of visual interest and drama to an indoor or outdoor corner.
This creative DIY project by A Beautiful Mess turns a trio of hammered gold bowls into eye-catching hanging planters with a few minor modifications. Depending on the finish of the bowls you use, you may need to keep these beauties on a covered porch and away from the elements. However, if you choose a vessel that naturally patinas when exposed to the elements you could enjoy these hanging anywhere in your yard.
Here’s a decidedly outdoor (and admittedly unconventional) hanging planter option, that checks multiple boxes—it’s eco-friendly, sustainable, and provides a brilliant pop of color to any shady corner of your yard.
Who knew an old tire only needed a couple of coats of spray paint and a couple of drilled holes for drainage (no you won’t be watering your faux plants…but your tire will be hanging in the elements and you’ll want to create an avenue through which rain water can escape) to create this cheery hanging tire planter by the creative geniuses over at DIY Show Off?
We’ve barely touched on the surface of all the hanging options for faux plants. The truth is, if you can dream it, you can DIY it (or buy it!). We hope this provides you with a bit of inspiration for starting your own artificial hanging plants display. We think you’ll love the balance a well-placed hanging plant or plants can provide.
