Vicky's easy DIY hanging planter tutorial“I love making something out of nothing; turning the old and unloved into something new and wonderful is pretty brilliant.” Especially when plants are involved! For my first post here at Braintree, I’m going to be showing you how to turn a plain embroidery hoop into a fabulously versatile hanging planter, which is perfect for showing off everything from succulents and cacti, to trailing ivy and bushy ferns.
How to make itYou’ll need:
- A few embroidery hoops (how many depends on how many planters you want to make)
- A length of sturdy chain
- Large jump rings
- Materials for decoration; washi tape, paint, ribbon, lace... Anything goes!
- Pliers (standard, and needle-nose)
