Well this a first, I'm writing my blog from another country, very exciting! If you being following my Instagram posts @mrsclh then you I recently landed in England to visit one of my dearest friends for two weeks. Talk about the ultimate girls trip! My latest DIY Workshop project for The Home Depot was to build a DIY Hanging Planter. Today, I'm sharing my customized version of hanging planter.
I love the idea of having a small hanging planter that is perfect for indoors. I love terrariums, they are so pretty. To me they feel like tiny self contained little gardens. I've been wanting to add one to my house for ages. When I spotted the Pride Gardens Glob Terrarium in The Home Depot Garden section, I knew it would so amazing in a hanging frame. I decided to build a hanging planter that could be placed on counter, desk or windowsill that felt modern and worked perfectly for my home. Using 1x2 walnut wood from The Home Depot, I four pieces of wood 12 inches long and then built a frame using my Ryobi Airstrike Nail Gun. To make sure the frame is nice and secure, I used 1 1/4 nails.
Seriously friends, I'm obsessed with my Ryobi Airstrike nail gun, it makes me feel like a pro. Next, I pre-drilled a small hole on the inside the center of the frame and screwed in a cup hanger.
I used indoor garden soil and placed two small succulents inside, then added a few rocks to help with drainage. Next, I hung the globe inside the walnut frame. I absolutly love how pretty and modern the globe looks inside the wood frame. The warm wood tones of walnut the are such a pretty contrast to the green succulants inside.
I'm so happy with how this project turned out, my new hanging planter feels right at home in my living room. Plants always make for happy additions in rooms, don't they?
