Plants can liven up a home like nobody’s business, and hanging plants take that liveliness to a whole new level, literally. These tutorials will help you transform clay, rope, wood slices, and even recyclables into functional, fabulous hanging planters.
DIY Hanging Plant Holders
You’ll probably have to translate the instructions and the measurements are in metric, but this clean, modern DIY is worth the extra effort, and it can be easily made “with little means but a little patience. To ensure that the plants are not stolen, the plant holders are kept very simple.” Bonus! Get the tutorial from Craftifair.
Leather Sling Hanging Planter
These leather sling hanging planters are so effortlessly beautiful. They aren’t perfectly fitted or fancy or brightly colored, they just look great. All the little details like the cut edges and loose strings make them look even better when in many cases this would make them look messy. Get the tutorial from Vintage Revivals.

Plastic Fishbowl Hanging Planter
They look like they hold their own little world inside of them, and come to think of it these could make really effective little fairy garden bases for kids. There is such a wide range of possibilities for these fishbowl hanging planters. You could go fully succulent based, brighten things up with some flowers or even have draping plants spilling out of the front. Get the tutorial from A Beautiful Mess.

Embroidery Hoop Hanging Planter
The bowl holding the plant in this DIY looks like it is close to falling off the hoop, which of course it is not, and I really like the effect this gives. It looks delicate and very well put together. This is incredibly inexpensive to make, and so easily customizable. Get the tutorial from Northstory.

DIY Tiered Hanging Pots
The color contrast between the black rope and the terracotta colored plant pots in these tiered hanging pots is really appealing to me. This could be a really great standout piece in an otherwise neutrally colored room. Get the tutorial from DesignSponge.
