DIY Hanging Planter

I needed a little help in my backyard and this hanging planter did just the trick. It adds a pop of color on an otherwise bare brick wall. I strayed from the original plans a little bit because I used scrap wood leftover from other projects. You can find the original tutorial here.

First, I cut a 1×3 in half, making the two sides. Then I cut some remaining wood into three equal parts to make the shelves and attaching them equally down. The bottom shelf is flush with the sides.

Then, I added a piece on the front of the shelves to create a little “lip”. I attached all the pieces with wood glue and 1 1/4 inch brads for my nail gun. Next, I drilled a big hole on the top of each side and slipped a little bit of rope through.

Finally, I spray painted the entire piece using Krylon Metallic spray paint and I sealed it using spray polyurethane.

This is a pretty easy project that can easily be adapted for whatever wood you have leftover. Don’t forget your wood glue!

Happy building!
