These hanging plants are not only a delightful addition to a small space, but they are customizable to your liking. All you need are a couple small plants, potting soil, paint cans, awl, hammer, scissors, colorful duct tape, twine, wooden planks, and teacup hooks to get started.

Tap Holes on Sides

Use the awl and the hammer to tap holes on each side of the cans.

Apply Duct Tape

Choose your favorite duct tape color or pattern and wrap around the tops of the cans over the holes. Then, using the awl, punch through the duct tape to open the holes.

Thread Twine Through

Thread the twine through the holes in the cans and knot on each side to ensure that the twine will stay put. 

Tap Holes in Bottoms

Use the awl and the hammer to add holes to the bottom of the cans. These will act as drainage holes for when you water your plants.

Place Plants in Cans

Fill cans with potting soil and plant your plants.

Screw in Hooks

Carefully screw in the teacup hooks onto the front of the plank, and make sure all of the hooks are turned in the same direction.

Drill Plank to Wall

Find an outdoor spot and drill the plank into the wall or side of house.

Hang Pots

Now, time for the finishing touch. Hang your pretty pots onto the hooks and watch your plants grow!
