Hanging gardens are my favorite way to decorate a small porch, patio, or even a room indoors! Hanging garden DIY projects are relatively easy, and once you see what a bit of overhead greenery can do, you won’t want to stop! Keep reading for a few of my favorite and easy hanging garden ideas. I can’t wait to see your finished products!
Give an old wooden crate a little bit of new life as a hanging planter. I find it easier to plant in small terra cotta pots first, and then place them all in this wooden crate. This hanging garden idea is small which is great for smaller spaces!
Don’t throw away your plastic water and soda bottles just yet! With a few tweaks from a pair of scissors, these can be repurposed easily outdoors. This is more of a vertical garden idea than a hanging garden idea, but I love it still!
You can’t go wrong with simple hanging plants! Install hooks and hang plants wherever some color is needed. You can find hanging garden planters like this at Garden Hills Nursery. This hanging garden idea is super easy and simple!
We eat chili almost religiously in this household! We eat it so often that my kids have built SEVERAL gardens like this in the backyard. This year, we are doing it again! Screw your tin cans into a pallet for hanging support, or hang them with a small chain!
If you’ve got plants that love ample sunshine, try growing them on a patio! Again, these are repurposed soda bottles, only turned sideways for more room to grow.
Succulents look gorgeous anywhere and everywhere. Planted inside a deep wooden frame, these plants are all slightly tilted to promote adequate drainage.
Perfect for dull corners in any room of your house, steel mesh (found at any hardware store) and hanging pots from IKEA complete this effortless look. Now all you have to do is remember to water them….
Put your nautical rope tying skills to go use with this quick and easy hanging garden DIY. Ordinary wood is used and the containers are secured with nothing but zip ties!
