Paint Can Vertical Garden
Vertical gardens add color and interest, and are the perfect way to maximize a small space. Learn how to create a fun, colorful vertical herb garden you can hang from your house or wall.
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.
Now, time for the finishing touch. Hang your pretty pots onto the hooks and watch your plants grow!
