DIY/Upcycling: Hanging tin can planters

It’s spring again (thankfully!). We spend lots of time in our garden again and hang out on our terrace watching the grass grow. To make this experience even more enjoyable I decided to put something green on the wooden privacy screen that divides our terrace from our neighbours‘. Since I didn’t want to spend money again and I’m totally in a DIY-mood , I got some inspiration from the web (unfortunately, I didn’t bookmark my source 😦  )  and found the idea to create hanging tin can planters. It’s really not a big deal to make them and I had the material right under my nose (I really love upcycling!). To start with I decided to just plant some herbs in them, but I guess I will swap them for other plants eventually.

The pictures below will (hopefully) explain how I did it. If you still have any questions, don’t hesitate to leave a comment.

What you need: tin can, something to drill a few holes into them, cord, scissors 🙂

Drill holes into both sides to put cord through them and create the actual hanger.

Fill pots with some stones for drainage, soil and plants. Hang onto wall (maybe ask neighbours for help, if it’s to difficult to fiddle the cord through 🙂 ). Ready!

Have a good weekend!
