Hi, I'm Amber Oliver! I hope if you enjoy this project you'll also stop by my blog!

I bought some new metal planters for my patio but needed to mount them in brick. Not nearly as easy as in drywall but with the right tools you can do it quickly and easily! HERE'S THE KIT WITH HEAVY DUTY ANCHORS I USED FOR THIS PROJECT!


Your first step is to measure and mark where you'd like to make the holes.

Now using a drill bit designed for brick, drill a hole into the brick. This will take a bit longer than it would with drywall or wood, but move slowly and let the bit do the work.

Next, insert an anchor. This is your secret weapon and the only way this will work!

Use a hammer to get the anchor in.

After the screws are added, you can easily hang whatever you need on the brick! I put up my little planters after a gave them a quick coat of spray paint and planted some pretty little blooms in them. Don't they look good next to my yellow back door!? I love how cheerful it looks by my backdoor now!
