Hanging planters work both indoors and out, with garden annuals and with evergreens. Creating your own DIY hanging planters is easy, and it adds character to your home or garden by giving you a unique container. Keep in mind that indoor hanging planters can be heavy, so please use your judgement in choosing hanging materials, and in securing them to a structure. Other than that, anything that holds soil and is light enough to hang is fair game! Here are some DIY tutorials, inspirational photos and ideas to get you started.
