The calendar says it’s spring, but clearly it’s confused because I awoke to sleet and snow flurries. Not funny mother nature, not funny. Especially because I’ve had a serious itch to get started on some outdoor projects. While some of them are just going to have to wait for warmer weather, this super simple DIY wood slice hanging planter most certainly did not. And the bonus? It works for indoors or outdoors!
To get started you’ll need:
Wood Slice – Purchased at Michael’s
small flower pot
Jigsaw or rotary tool
Drill and 3/4″ spade bit
Trace the opening for the flower pot onto the wood slice
Carefully cut out the circle with either a rotary tool or jigsaw.
Sand off any rough edges. Then use a 3/4″ spade drill bit to make the holes for the sisal rope. I used 1/2″ sisal rope.
If you plan to hang the planter outside, you’ll want to apply some sort of protective coat at this point, like spar urethane.
Then insert your flower pot. Followed by a fake plant. Unless you have your life together (unlike myself) and have real flowers on hand. Pull the rope through the holes, tie a big ol’ knot and hang it up!
It took me about 30 minutes to make and I wasn’t lying when I said it was super easy, right?!
This adorable hanging planter lives in the 3 season porch beneath our deck and I must say, it really is the perfect spot for it. Don’t you agree?
See that outdoor sofa and coffee table? Last summer we whipped those bad boys up just in time to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday in our backyard. Nothing like a good party to make you finish up projects!
