How to make a hanging basket planter

Hanging Basket Planter

Last Updated on

Hanging baskets  are an effective way of bringing a boring spot in your home to life. They’re basically the same size as a regular planter but they are more noticeable since they are, well, hung and not sitting low on the ground.

What also makes them really effective, particularly open-sided baskets, is that they can accommodate up to four times more plants than a traditional basket or planter can! With hanging baskets you can combine various trailing plants in just one container for a massive-looking and colourful living decor in your home.

If you want to feature your front porch or fill an empty wall in of your house, hanging baskets may be your solution!
