MAKE YOUR OWN DIY HANGING PLANTER FOLLOWING THESE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS
This post is sponsored by Bernzomatic but all thoughts, opinions, and styling are my own.
Recently, we gave Jules a teen room makeover. Being the atypical teen girl that she is, Jules wanted to fill her room with a variety of living plants. She has amassed quite a collection on her nightstand and she even has a plant cart. I decided why not add a couple more by building these really simple DIY hanging planters. Here’s how we made them using the Bernzomatic TS3500.
Most of my projects are customizable so you can change the size, color, or even style to fit your own home. I built two sizes using just one scrap piece of wood. If you have any scrap wood laying around, this is the perfect way to use it up! Feel free to add color like Jules did or feel free to omit this part.
DIY HANGING PLANTER
- Bernzomatic TS3500
- Bernzomatic Propane Hand Torch Cylinder
- 1X4 Pinewood
- Miter saw
- Tack Cloth
- 4 Flathead wood screws
- Natural cotton cord
- 4 Steel Screw Eye Hooks
- 2 Picture hanging hooks
- Optional: Paint
STEP 1: MEASURE AND CUT YOUR WOOD
After deciding on the size, cut each hanging planter into three equal pieces. I did one around 5 inches and slightly larger for the other one. I played around with the mitered edges until I was happy with the angle. I used my miter saw to create the angle cuts where the corners met as well as the ends.
STEP 2: SAND AND ATTACH PIECES TOGETHER WITH SCREWS
I attached the pieces by adding one screw from the back of each side. The angle is a little wonky so you may need an extra set of hands or a clamper to make this step easier.
Don’t forget to sand down the wood pieces to smooth out any sharp edges. Make sure to clean it off with a tack cloth.
STEP 3: TORCH THE WOOD WITH TS3500
Jules wanted to torch the insides of the planter and so she gave it a nice beautiful finish using the Bernzomatic TS3500. The multi-purpose torch is quite easy to use and I feel comfortable allowing Jules to work with it.
STEP 4: PAINT THE EDGES FOR CONTRAST
Jules chose a pretty sage color to go against her newly painted walls. This is optional but a pretty way to add some variation and style to your planter.
STEP 5: ADD SCREW EYE-HOOKS AND TIE A CORD
Look how cute! I hung them on picture hooks above her cute plant shelf.
This was an easy and fun project to do with my teen and now she’s elated to add onto her plant collection. These would be so cute out on the patio. Imagine hanging a bunch on a wall filled with your favorite succulents and plants.
If you decide to make one, be sure to share it with me because I would love to see it! As always, thanks for reading!
