Upcycle Dollar Store Baskets Into a Unique Hanging Planter
Beautiful cascading planters can be hard to find. Making your own has never been so simple or affordable.
Instead of searching far and wide for the perfect hanging planter, consider making your own. With a few dollar store baskets, some moss and spray paint, you can up your container garden game with a gorgeous DIY plant cascade.
- 10.5’ piece of chain
- bolt cutters
- 10 small S-hooks
- spray paint
- dry moss
- 5 wire dollar store baskets
Cut the Chain & Paint
Using a ruler and bolt cutters, measure and cut ten, 12-inch pieces of chain. Once all pieces are cut, lay the chain sections, S-hooks, baskets and carabiner out and coat evenly with spray paint.
Plant, Hang and Admire
Once the paint has dried, add natural beauty and drainage to each basket by lining with a layer of dry moss. Fill with your favorite outdoor plants. Attach an S-hook to both sides of one basket, then thread a piece of chain into each hook. Attach another set of S-hooks to a second basket and connect the chain so that the first basket hangs below the second. Continue this pattern until all five baskets are connected. Finish by threading the top two chains onto a carabiner, then hang your new creation in the perfect sun-soaked spot.
