DIY HANGING GARDEN HOW-TO GUIDE
I took on the task of incorporating a small DIY project that I’m excited to share. I added a hanging garden display to my balcony. It was super easy and inexpensive to do. Here’s my shopping list for the project: (click items to shop)4 teracotta pots12oz can of Rustoleum Matte White Spray Paint8oz sample of Behr’s Laser Lemon color paint 1 Foam Paint Brush4 Rubber bandsRope STEP 1:I started by turning my pots upside down to prep for painting. It’s a good idea to take a clean cloth and wipe thoroughly to remove any dirt and oils before starting. This will ensure a nice and even coating of paint and no splotchy areas. *Tip: I like keeping the barcode labels on the bottom, while painting, as this keeps the paint from seeping into the inside of the pot and mixing with your soil. I remove them at the end once I’m ready to add my soil and water. STEP 2:
Spray paint each of your pots with one coating of spray paint and let them completely dry, then add a second coating and allow to dry.*Tip: Don’t hold the can too close while painting, or you will have a runny buildup that will be almost impossible to correct. STEP 3:
Now you’re ready to add your rubber bands. Decide where you would like for your accent color to start and use your rubber band to create a seamless line. STEP 4:
Paint the accent color on each of your pots and let them dry. I did 2 coats of my accent color, letting dry between application. STEP 5:
Once the paint is completely dry, remove your rubber bands. Cut your rope into 3.5′ pieces, or adjust for desired length if you’d like for them to hang a little longer. I burned the ends of my rope, just a little, to seal them.
Tie overhand knots on both ends of the rope
wrap one end of the rope around the pot and tuck the knotted end underneath itself to stabilize it, then do the same thing with the other end of the rope.Now that you’ve completed your rope hangers here’s what your completed pots should look like: Now you’re ready to remove your barcode labels from the bottom, fill with soil and plant your desired items, and your DIY project is complete!
