I have tons of projects that just sit and sit (while collecting dust). Well, this is one that is sitting no more. The sad thing about it is that it only took twenty minutes. Why would you let a twenty minute project just sit and sit? Wish I knew! Anyways, I’m in love with my free and quick DIY Upcycled Plant Hanger!
I’m pretty sure you get the gist on how to make it, but I’ll break it down for you just in case.
1. Step one : Get a cute planter and put a plant in it.
(Kitty photobombing … seriously, he wouldn’t move!)
2. Step two : Find an old belt.
Step 3 : Cut the buckle off the belt. Cut the belt (long-wise) in three strips.
Step 4 : Drill three holes in your planter to put the belt through. I drilled using a small bit, then moved up to medium and finally moved to a larger bit.
Step 5 : Hot glue each strap on to each other (use clamps to squeeze tight).
Step 6 : Make a knot at the top and hang from a cup hook.
I really love how the leather looks, especially in front of the two rope hangers. Oh, and if you want to check out the white rope hanger, here is that tutorial.
