DIY Hanging Succulent Planter

Hanging macrame planters have been ‘out’ for a few years now but this is a clean modern take on the old hanger. And, let’s face it, there is always a corner of your home that needs a bit of greenery without using up valuable table space. Use a dollar store bowl, embroidery hoop, and cord to create this trendy hanging succulent planter.

Grab your supplies and get ready to create your hanging succulent planter! First make sure your embroidery hoop and bowl fit. You want the hoop to come up under the lip of the bowl, but not be at risk for the bowl to slip through the hoop. You also want to avoid a bowl that is too big and doesn’t go far enough up the bowl. This will make your hanger unstable.

Next, decide how long you would like your planter to hang. Then cut three lengths of cord, adding on 3-inches to your hanging length for knots. Tie a secure knot on the end of each length of cord

Loosen the outer ring of the embroidery hoop and push through each of the knots, spreading them out around the hoop. Then tighten the tension of the outer hoop so that the knots cannot be pulled through between inner and outer hoops.

Plant your succulent, or whatever plant you choose, in your ceramic bowl. Clean up the edges and sides just in case any soil is lingering. Place bowl inside hoop. Lift up on your lengths of cords until they are taut. Gently lift your hoop and planter off the ground and create a knot that allows your plant to hang balanced. This took me two tries, but it’s really not too difficult.

Use an S-Hook or O-Ring to hold up your planter. Then hang it from a hook you may already have hanging, or you can use simple screw hooks mounted to suspend your planter.

Now sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor! This is a quick and easy way to bring some green life into any room!
